Trailer Tuesday: Predator (1987)

“Soon the hunt will begin.”
Thanks to movietrailerz92 for uploading this trailer up on YouTube!

Predator was directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard), and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger (True Lies), Bill Duke (Deep Cover), Jesse Ventura (The Running Man), Kevin Peter Hall (Misfits of Science), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Sonny Landham (Action Jackson), Richard Chaves (War of the Worlds: The Series), Shane Black (Writer of Monster Squad, Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and R.G. Armstrong (Pretty much every TV show ever!).

When this movie hit VHS I probably watched it over and over for a month. Just couldn’t get tired of it.

  1. I remember how excited I was when I first watched it, for some reason my Father was just absolutely sure this was just going to be a war picture. I kept telling him that with a name like Predator and the stuff we were seeing in the trailer…this wasn’t going to be just a war picture. Then of course when the show started and we got that nice view of space and the Predator’s ship…my Father just slowly nodded his head.

    I always thought it was awesome that Shane Black was reading Sgt. Rock in the chopper as well. :)
