Blood flows freely and F-bombs are dropped at an expedient rate in the final trailer for 20th Century Fox's The Predator. If you were on the fence about seeing director Shane Black's latest attempt at resurrecting this meandering franchise, this latest footage will surely push you over the edge. It's got my full attention now, and it's all thanks to this gore-soaked clip.
Backed by a pulsing hip-hop soundtrack, the basic nature of The Predator is laid out in this two minute preview that swings like a bat and hits like a hammer. We get to see the hunters tearing human bodies up, and shredding them into confetti. This is one reboot that definitely earns its R rating. And it looks like a lot of fun.
