This morning brings the full (official) trailer for Prey, showing off new killer action, along with news that has my Native heart swelling.
As someone who grew up with the Predator franchise and a Native American, I’ve been very much eager for this Prey trailer. Thankfully, it rules and was well worth the wait:
Lot of things I’m loving in this trailer, from the action, to how the Predator alien himself is a bit more hidden (like in the original film). In all, it looks like a damn fine continuation of the franchise. Even better, however, an interview with ComicBook.com reveals the film will launch with the option to watch it completely dubbed (with subtitles) in the Native Comanche language.
This is the first time ever a movie has released simultaneously in a Native language, and I’m thrilled to see the filmmakers behind the scenes honoring the culture in such a way. Now, let’s hope that honoring continues throughout the film’s story itself!
Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, “Prey” is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
Prey hits Hulu on August 5, 2022.
