UPDATE 7/25 7:20 PM EST: The Prey The film’s trailer was pulled by Hulu shortly after its release. As of this writing, it’s unclear why.
The hunt becomes intense again with the new Prey movie trailer revealing the best look yet of the new Predator design. The upcoming film acts as a prequel to the first four entries in the Predator franchise, exploring the titular aliens’ first journey to Earth and encounters with humanity. Prey will focus on Naru, a highly skilled warrior from the Comanche Nation living with her tribe on the Great Plains in 1719 who must rise up and break her tribe’s norms to save the people she loves from the highly evolved alien threat.
Amber Midthunder, well known for her work in FX’s Legion and the CWs Roswell, New Mexicodirects the cast of Prey as Naru alongside Dane DiLiegro as Predator, Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush and Julian Black Antelope. The film’s development was initially kept secret, with 10 Cloverfield Laneby Dan Trachtenberg who is mounting the project under the working title of skulls to keep his Predator ties under shawls. As anticipation continues to grow for the prequel, audiences are getting an exciting new look at Prey.
With just over a week left until its release, Hulu unveiled a new Prey movie trailer. The video offered the best look at the new Predator design as Naru trained to take on the alien species. The Predator’s new design was seen as it stripped off its tech camouflage to reveal the skull atop its head and a larger mouth than in previous films. Hulu and 20th century studios then removed the Prey trailer for the film and, at the time of writing, no reason has been given for this.
Although the Prey The movie’s trailer looked innocuous enough in the grand scheme of footage released, it’s interesting that Hulu and 20th Century Studios opted to take down the video a few hours after it was posted. With the trailer’s final shot showing an unmasked predator being attacked by Naru in a nighttime fight, it seems possible the studios felt they were giving too much away for the upcoming prequel. Considering there’s only a week left before it hits Hulu, it’ll be interesting to see if they consider removing the trailer or re-uploading it later.
Regardless of the new Prey With the movie’s trailer pulled, anticipation is running high for the franchise’s next prequel. The film screened at Comic-Con in San Diego, where those in attendance praised the series’ bloody, action-packed return to form, with many hailing it as the best since the original. Predator film. Only time will tell if audiences feel the same when Prey hits Hulu on August 5.
