The Predator is an upcoming action, horror, sci-fi movie that will hit theaters on September 14, 2018. Now, if you have never seen any of the Predator movies before, stay with me here for a minute because it may get a bit confusing.

So, The Predator is the 4th installment in the Predator movie series- after the 1987 Predator, the 1990 Predator 2 and the 2010 Predators. However, if you count the 2 Alien vs. Predator movies, it’s actually the 6th installment.

Those 2 movies- the 2004 Alien vs. Predator and the 2007 Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, are actually spin-off movies. Get it?

So, without further ado, here is some information on the movie’s cast members, along with some cool quotes and interesting trivia.

1. A new setting…

The upcoming movie will take place in a suburban setting. This is a different setting from the 3 previous Predator movies. The 1987 Predator and the 2010 Predators were set in a jungle and the 1990 Predator 2 took place in an urban setting, specifically Los Angeles, California.


2. A familiar director

Shane Black was hired to direct The Predator in June of 2014. Now, if that name sounds familiar to you, that’s because he played the role of Rick Hawkins in the 1987 Predator. Previously, Black has directed the 2013 Iron Man 3 and the 2016 The Nice Guys.


3. Not the first choice…

Before Boyd Holbrook was cast for the role of Quinn McKenna, two other actors were offered the role. James Franco was initially offered the role, but he declined it. Then, Benicio del Toro was cast in the role, but later backed out because of scheduling conflicts.

4. Ever-changing release dates

The Predator has gone through several release date changes. Originally, the movie was supposed to be released on March 2, 2018 but was later moved up to February 9, 2018. Then, the released date was pushed back to August 3, 2018 and later was pushed back once again, landing on its current release date of September 14, 2018.

5. Sorry, no Arnie

Arnold Schwarzenegger was in talks to reprise his role- Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer- from the 1987 Predator film. However, it was later revealed that he turned down the offer because in the movie script, his character didn’t have a significant role.

6. I thought that was a Busey boy!


In the upcoming movie, Jake Busey plays the role of Sean Keyes, the son of Peter Keyes. Now, if you have followed the film series, you’ll know that the character of Peter Keyes appeared in the 1990 Predator 2. The role of Peter Keyes was played by actor Gary Busey, who is Jake Busey’s real-life father. Pretty cool, huh?

7. Do we see a Predator vs. Punisher in the future?

Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown and Thomas Jane have all appeared in a Marvel Studios film. Holbrook played the role of Donald Pierce in the 2017 Logan, Munn played the role of Elizabeth Braddock/Psylocke in the 2016 X-Men: Apocalypse, Brown played the role of N’Jobu in the 2018 Black Panther and Jane played the role of Frank Castle/The Punisher in the 2004 The Punisher.
