Shane Black is back, but this time behind both the typewriter and cameras as he goes from starring in the original Predator movie to writing and directing this 2018 version.
A predator crashes on Earth trying to bring mankind a present. Another, much larger, predator is sent to prevent the present from being delivered and caught in the middle are Quinn, Body Holbrook (“Logan“, “A Walk Among The Tombstones”), and his son Rory, Jacob Tremblay (“Wonder”, “Shut In”).
They meet up with a scientist, Olivia Munn (“The Newsroom (TV)”, “X-Men: Apocalypse”), and a bunch of soldiers, with a wide range of issues, including Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”, “12 Strong”), Keegan-Michael Key (“Tomorrowland”, “Let’s Be Cops”), Thomas Jane (“The Expanse (TV)”, “Thin Red Line”), Alfie Allen (“John Wick”, “Game Of Thrones (TV)”) and Augusto Aguilera (“Chasing Life (TV)”, “8”), to take on the big predator before it destroys mankind.
This, of course, is not the first thing Shane Black has both written and directed since starring in the original Predator movie. In fact, around the same time he was starring in Predator he was writing Lethal Weapon. He also wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3 and The Nice Guys to name a few.
His movies are filled with humour, they have a certain style to them, a swagger almost, and in Iron Man 3, he’s picked up the mantle of long-running franchises before.
