20th Century Fox‘s The Predator has been caught up in some controversy the last few days, with the news coming in that director Shane Black cast his friend Steven Wilder Striegel, a registered sex offender, in the movie. That scene has been cut, but Olivia Munn, who was in the scene, had an understandably strong reaction to the news, as she was not aware of all the reasons why Striegel had been convicted.
With the movie opening in a week, on September 14, the studio must nevertheless carry on with the marketing and has now released a clip in with the Predator fights the newly-created Ultimate Predator. You can watch the clip using the player above, and you can watch all the previously-released videos by clicking here.
The Predator was recently rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout, and crude sexual references. It stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
The Predator was written by Fred Dekker and Shane Black.
