When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe's most lethal hunters' return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled scientist can prevent the end of the human race.
When first seeing the Predator strapped to a table, Olivia Munn's character calls the creature "a beautiful motherfucker". This is a nod to the original Predator (1987) where Arnold Schwarzenegger calls the creature "one ugly motherfucker". This term has been used as a running gag ... ...
Merc: What? You're gonna kill us with a fucking tranq gun?

The Upgrade Predator sees in infrared and has a HUD display for his vision, despite the fact he doesn't wear a mask at all. His vision should be all red as seen in the 1st installment and the 3rd installment when a Predator doesn't wear his mask. However, the infrared heat POV can been seen without his mask due to his inbuilt biotech/bio-metric enhancements.
In the trailers, the 20th Century Fox logo appears through the Predator's thermal vision. The movie itself sticks with the usual Fanfare intro with no Predator embellishments.
