I would normally save this for our sci-fi site SciFiCool.com, but since the “Predators” franchise defies all genre, thought I’d post it here as well. It’s the trailer that Robert Rodriguez promised would make its premiere at the shindig down over at SXSW, and was posted at the film’s official site. It’s your first look at “Predators”, starring Adrien Brody as a badass mercenary type (just go with it), and Laurence Fishburne in the role that clearly should have gone to Schwarzenegger if he wasn’t, you know, running California right now. The plot, as you may know, has Brody and various other deadly humans on Earth being abducted and taken to the Predator homeworld, where Super Predators hunt them down for sport. See, this is why I’m always bad at sports; no one ever abducts the wheezing, out of shape blogger to hunt, no sirree.
Starring Topher Grace, Adrien Brody , Danny Trejo, Laurence Fishburne, Alice Braga, Derek Mears, Brian Steele, Walton Goggins, Carey Jones, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, Oleg Taktarov, Louis Ozawa Changchien, and directed by Nimród Antal. Robert Rodriguez produces from his comfy chair.
