While we continue to wait for proper footage of director Shane Black’s upcoming sequel to the 1987 sci-fi action classic Predator, we now have our first peek at the title character.
Photographer Jarrod Au snapped the candid shot while on the set of The Predator, giving fans not only a great look at the design of the alien, but also a good laugh.
It’s the first time we’ve seen what the Predator will look like in the film, and judging by the photo, it seems Black has opted to stick with the original design. The filmmaker has said the Predator will be played by someone in an actual costume, which is confirmed by this image — something that will no doubt please fans of the franchise.
It should be noted that there are actually two Predators in the shot: one crouching and another is peeking his head out of the armored vehicle. Will this mean that there will be multiple Predators, or are they merely doubles? Fans will have to wait just a bit longer to find out, as The Predator is set to arrive Aug. 3, 2018. The film stars Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Keegan-Michael Key, Edward James Olmos and Yvonne Strahovski.
