This morning, 20th Century Fox released the trailer:Here's the movie synopsis:
"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."
In case you're confused about the beginning of the trailer, with Jacob Tremblay playing with with toys, his character is directly connected to what happens -- he accidentally activated the alien ship.
Here are some details from IndieWire, from after the trailer played at CinemaCon:
"The footage begins with Tremblay's young boy on Halloween playing with a toy box that has a toy alien ship inside of it. It turns out the toy is controlling a real alien spaceship, similar to the way Anne Hathaway controlled a monster in 'Colossal.' The vessel ends up crash landing on Earth and releasing tons of Predators."
Should've kept the box shut, kid!
The trailer, or something similar, got mostly positive reactions when it premiered at CinemaCon. What do you think so far?
"The Predator" opens in theaters on September 14.
