On opening night at Austin, Texas' South by Southwest Film Festival, while fanboys and reporters were fawning over the highly-anticipated comic book adaptation Kick-Ass, producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal were (comparatively) quietly premiering a short but promising collection of footage from their upcoming sequel Predators. Joined by effects guru Greg Nicotero, the duo debuted two versions of a theatrical trailer for the film, unveiled an extra scene and an image gallery of creature designs, and fielded questions from a capacity crowd at Austin's Alamo Ritz theater.

The following morning, Rodriguez and Antal spoke directly to reporters about the project, which is scheduled to be released on July 7, 2010. In addition to expounding upon some of the answers they provided during the preview question-and-answer session, Antal talked about his approach to the iconic material, Rodriguez offered a few details about upcoming projects, and both explained the excellent working relationship they shared with one another and distributor Fox as they worked to bring Predators to the screen.
