The Predator arrived in theaters this fall under much fanfare. And while most fans had fun watching it, they couldn't help but recognize that it was a mess. Now, the movie is heading home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD just in time for the holidays. While we won't be getting a director's cut, at least not yet, this release does contain some of the infamous missing scenes we've been hearing about.
The Predator reshoots have become stuff of legend, and when the movie hit theaters this past September, most fans couldn't help but notice the haphazard why in which the film was edited. It appeared that huge chunks of exposition were missing, and the viewing experience was not unlike watching Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse for the first time in theaters, only those missing scenes were intentional.
Now, we'll get to see some of the scenes that were unceremoniously yanked out of the final cut. They include moments with the Emissary Predators, Olivia Munn's introduction, which was cut because the actor appearing alongside her was a convicted sex offender, and the alternate ending, which was shot during the daytime, as opposed to what we see in the movie, which was shot at night.
It isn't known which, if any, of these scenes will be included. We doubt Olivia Munn's intro will be resurrected due to the circumstances surrounding the scene and Munn's personal feelings about working with a sex predator when she did not know his background. Either way, fans will get to see some of what hit the cutting room floor. And it can only help the overall enjoyment of the film at this point. Fox says this in their press release.
