Morpheus Fights Predators

Posted by inferiorego (22403 posts) - - Show Bio

  SciFi Wire    reported that Matrix star, Laurence Fishburne, will appear in the upcoming summer 2010 release, Predators. 

 Fisburne will play Noland, a character being compared to Yoda, who has used his Zen-like abilities to survive among the alien Predators on a deadly hunting planet.   


  Zen-like abilities you say? Someone has been watching Steven Segal: Lawman a little too much. This movie has a huge cast already:        Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Walton Goggins and Danny Trejo. For those who haven't seen or remember the first Predator film, it's about an hunter type alien who comes to Earth and takes out a team of special-ops military personnel, one-by-one. Eventually, after setting numerous traps,    Schwarzenegger's character wound the Predator and the Predator kills himself, hoping to take Arnie out in the process. A whole team couldn't bring a Predator down. This film, however, doesn't even take place on Earth.      

Predators  , which is now in production, is conceived of as a sequel of sorts to the original Arnold Schwarzenegger film, with the added "s" an homage to James Cameron's classic   Alien   sequel,   Aliens  . The story of   Predators   centers on a group of eight humans who wake up to find themselves being hunted for sport in the jungles of a strange planet.    


 

Luckily, they have Noland's zen-like    abilities    to help them out... I guess. It's been a long while since we've seen a flat-out Predator film, since Predator 2 starring Danny "Riggs" Glover. The plot does sound interesting, I'll give them that, but what do you guys think? Will this movie be good or do your zen-like abilities detect something awful?

My zen-like abilities detect this will be awful. 
 
You mean to tell me Rodriquez that your elite team is tougher & better than this team of commandos ? 
 

 


 

I THINK NOT !! 
 
Now this is who it should've been or close to it

I always thought they should make a Predator movie with all alien languages. No humans. No English. No Earth.

i like the predator and alien films. 
yes,even alien 3. 
i'm looking forward to this movie and fishburne is cool. 
i could just see him and his csi team bustin' some predator skulls. 
i like see him pick up a M-60 or a l.a.w. rocket launcher. 
hell,throw a hornet's nest at a predator,he might just have a chance then.

First I've heard of a new Predator film, call me a cynical sceptic but I don't have high hopes.....it sounds like it'll flat out blow :S

Well, it's not like Predator was a great movie or anything. This sounds like it will be at least on par with an Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie from 20+ years ago.

Predator was awesome and this will be awesome simply for having the title within it's title.

Sounds lame.

I am a huge fan of Predator... but none of the movies after Predator 2 had the same "feel" to them. Still though.. I'll end up watching it all the same. Even if it blows like the last 2..

i think this will be a good movie,rather than have a load of macho types just blasting guns ,this looks to have a more interesting cast and collection of characters.so at least it wont be a completely dumb movie.

That's an interesting cast being assembled so far..

Hell yes.
As for the 'film' they are trying to make, Hell no.

can't really say, rob rodriguez's movies are wild cards

I predict: Walter Whoever dies first. Adrian Brody gets caught and is used as a trap then DIES. Topher Grace finds an Asian chick who has somehow survived and saves her. He makes some bad jokes like pussy as big as a house stuff. Then he gets killed in front of her. She grabs a gun, Fishburne knocks it from her hands and he gets laser-cannoned but lives. He falls down a waterfall and realizes that cold mud prevents the Predators from seeing him. He picks off the Predators one by one until only one is left. Right when they're about to fight a goddamn ALIEN jumps out of nowhere and we get the first real badass AvP fight on film (I did like Requiem though) and it leads into the next AvP. Then the Asian chick and Fishburne get rescued by Colonial Marines. She says her name is Machiko. Oh SNAP!!!

Watch...Danny Trejo gets killed first. The Mexican always dies. Interesting cast. I'll definitely watch this.

Yeah. Stan was the man. SFX and Sci-Fi owe a big deal to him. I grew up watching his work. I loved Pumpkinhead.
