At long last, the wait is over. Set your nerdometers to full-on geek out mode because the first trailer for Nimrod Antal's Predators is now online. Produced by Robert Rodriguez, the reboot-slash-sequel is due in theaters July 9th. IGN scored a nearly two minute long preview -- check it out after the jump.
In the film, Adrien Brody and a group of elite warriors are hunted by the alien Predator race -- only this time, the action takes place on the Predator homeworld. Brody is joined by Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo (love!) and Oleg Taktarov in the ensemble cast. Derek Mears, the most recent actor to don Jason Voorhees' hockey mask, will be one of the Predators.
The clip looks impressive, showcasing the lush landscape of the Predators' world while still managing to work in numerous action shots and scenes of the cast looking grizzled and badass. And holy testosterone -- I want to punch someone in the face after watching that.
Predators is the fifth film to feature the galaxy's most feared hunters. Here's to hoping it can make us forget all about the two Aliens vs. Predator films. You can read Todd's thoughts on the SXSW preview here.
