R | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
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.
The film was originally conceived as a reboot of "Predator" until Shane Black came aboard and confirmed he would be making a sequel instead, as he wanted to continue to explore the "Predator" mythology.
Picket One, copy. Do you got eyes on hostages?
Quinn McKenna: Still negative.
Dupree: 20 bucks says they don't show.

When Rory's "spectrum" skills are supposedly displayed after the fire alarm stops ringing, he replaces the chess pieces that were knocked off of three game boards when Derek and EJ leave the classroom. Just looking at the one game board Derek swiped, there were 7 white pieces and 4 black pieces. As Rory leaves, he has only replaced 4 of the 7 white pieces, and they and the black pieces are not in the same positions. For example, when Derek swiped the board, the Black King and Black Bishop were on diagonally-adjacent squares, but after Rory was done supposedly restoring the game board, they were on laterally-adjacent squares.
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.
