The Predator Gets Shifted to a Summer 2018 Release Date

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new Predator movie for a while now.  I’ve always loved the franchise, even in its missteps, the idea is an appealing one.  With the Alien franchise seemingly on track now, it’s high time for my other favorite monster franchise to get it together (though I presonally loved Predators).  Sadly, we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for it.  

This morning, Fox pushed Shane Black’s The Predator away from it’s February 2018 release date; instead it will now arrive on August 3, 2018.  It’s a good five month delay, which sucks, but signals some confidence in the project.  Fox is obviously liking whatever they’re seeing from the film, which is currently filming, and feel it’s strong enough to warrant a prime Summer release spot.  

It’s a good thing and has me more eager than ever to see what they’ve cooked up with this franchise revival.  Are you looking forward to seeing The Predator?
