This all-new featurette, which contains behind the scenes footage as well as scenes from the film, was used to launch the official Predators website. Not only do you get a look at the film when you visit, there is also a photo gallery featuring a look at the new Predator Hound. On March 18th, the site will launch the official trailer for the film. Watch the special sneak preview right now!
A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez's creative auspices at the filmmaker's Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet... as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers - mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members - human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predator. Predators opens July 7th, 2010, in theaters everywhere.
