    Alright, the new trailer is out for a couple of days now and I'm kinda thrilled, since I'm not only enjoying the predator movies but am also interested in a couple of native american tribes. The Comanche are one of them.

    Oh well, the trailer.
    Comments on Youtube vary. Some people are making fun of it, that a young woman is the one to take down the Yautja. (In the trailer he has to fight her tribe plus white settlers/hunters/whatever...)
    Others hope, that this movie will link this predator to the Elder in Predator 2 who gave Mike Harrigan the flintlock pistol.
    Unlikely, unless they ignore the comics.
    According to those, the Elder got the pistol from pirate captain Raphael Adolini himself.

    On the other hand, the guns in the trailer look like flintlock rifles, so might be around that same timeframe. It is still possible, but would mean that the Yautja survives his encounter with a Comanche woman.

    What annoys me a bit, that they shot the movie in Canada. The Comanche already lived in the south/southeast of the Central Plains in the 18th century. Yeah, yeah, I know. Should just enjoy the movie and stop being nit-picking.

    Any thoughts you got? Thrilled to watch it or a plain NO, since a woman is fighting against the Yautja?

    Looking forward to this flick. Ever since I watched the first predator movie as a youngin' I've always liked the verse.

    Ironic that I saw the The Predator for the first time a month ago. 

    Could've left the Predator-dogs out of the script.

    I hope this film gives the franchise a much needed boost.

    I'm expecting it to be highly predictable. Neat idea, but Hollywood writers ruin everything.

    Let's hope it's not that predictable this time.

    Watched the first movie for the first time after november 2020. 
    Stumbled upon some fanfiction when I was trying to not think about the NaNoWriMo. So tried to find distractions everywhere.
    Got hooked due to the fanfictions then watched the movies.

    I'm native so I'm simultaneously glad for the representation and also expecting it to be awful and have lots of dumb stereotypes etc. 
    I heard its gonna be dubbed into Comanche from release so thats encouraging.
    IDK why the hunter being a woman would make people not want to watch? I think thats just peoples cultural hangups maybe since in europeon cultures women arnt respected or seen as strong, but the same isnt true at all for most indigenous american peoples, most our societies were egalitarian or matriarchal anyway

    I like sci-fi and native representation, but also preparing for some cringe worthy scenes I guess

    Hope, they give us the choice to watch the dubbed version over here, since I'm interested in a few indigenous tribes like Lakota and Comanche.

    Guess those who don't want a female lead forgot about Ripley and other strong women in sci-fi. They also did not like Adrien Brody in Predators as male lead tbf. They just love to see a guy like Arnie.

    I was quite disappointed in The Predator so Im not expecting much from this film.

    Were you expecting a picture or something?

    Watched it yesterday.
    Interesting that they indeed included Adolini's weapon. Question is now, how did the Elder from Predator 2 get it?

    Another thing, I wonder if the bison hunting done by the French was done like that in the early eighteenth century. If I'm not mistaken the mindless killing for furs was more of a nineteenth century thing.

    What I said previously. I've heard good things though. Too bad it's streaming only at the moment urgh, not releasing a Predator film in the cinemas is terrible!
