Set for release in 2010, Predators is directed by Nimrod Antal and follows a mercenary named Royce who is abducted by alien creatures known as the Predators. He is released onto an alien planet—which acts as a game reserve—along with seven other humans, including a disgraced physician turned serial killer, are all cold-blooded killers consisting of mercenaries and convicts. Royce reluctantly leads the group of elite warriors as they come to realize they have been brought together to this planet as prey for a new breed of Predator.

and some more good news:
According to Antal, Predators takes its cues from Predator and Predator 2 and will not reference the two Alien vs. Predator films, as he felt that aesthetically they took the franchise in too outlandish a direction: "it was based on the designs, they kept on getting bigger and bigger and longer and longer swords and blades and the weapons became slightly cartoonish by the end there so we wanted to just bring it back and I think science fiction, the best science fiction is grounded science fiction, it's science fiction you can believe and you buy into and so far as design and everything else that's what kept us grounded as well."

personally I am a huge fan of predator itself too, perhaps the only film to feature not one but TWO future governors of US states

    I'm into a predator fighting a guy with a samurai sword. Laurence Fishburn appears to be in this movie but never talks in the trailers...? I haven't watched that international one so maybe I'm wrong!

    Predator has pretty sweet armor, always ready to go to war, machines keep the aim steady, always got the guns at the ready. Arnold entered the strife to end its life, I cringed every time some one got killed by a knife.

    Oh, yeah. He talks in this one. Good. I was just super surprised when I saw it before the A-Team and all I saw was a flash of his face then that seemed like it was it. He is as important as Adrian Brody!

    this thread also raises the question:

    what is love

    is love when you see someone and can't help giggling at every last thing they say no matter how unfunny it is

    or when you light up at the sight of a person and can't take your eyes off them

    or when you don't even have to google someone's name in order to spell it correctly

    because if that is love, then I am helplessly in love with arnold schwarzenegger

    Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and strangely enough, not many meatbags would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose... against statistically long odds.

    You can answer the question of what is love with the cliche ----of- it is something that you treat like a dove. hold it gently then let it go and see if you still want it badly.

    What I love about him is that the studio required a bodyguard to accompany him on set.
    Not to protect him but to protect the rest of the cast from him.

    I am going to see the fuck out of Predators

    But man

    It can't compete with the Expendables

    or the superior Rodriguez film Machete

    and it can't be the summer action appetizer before the beefcake man course as cases can be made for The Losers, Kick-Ass, Iron Man 2, or The A-Team being just that.

    Maybe it's like the broccoli of the Summer Action Meal

    I mean, it's not bad for you.

    But who wants to eat broccoli when you have Expendables Steak waiting for you?
