After co-starring in the original Predator, director Shane Black returns to direct the latest entry in the franchise, The Predator, as a ragtag group of ex-soldiers ends up caught between two of the intergalactic hunters who are battling over a mysterious cargo that crashed to Earth.
The Predator won a Pyrrhic victory at the box office over the weekend, taking #1 but also having the worst opening ever for a movie in over 4,000 theaters, taking that spot away from Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
The Predator arrives in theaters this weekend alongside a Paul Feig directed thriller, the sequel to Unbroken and a “based on a true story” drug/crime story starring Matthew McConaughey.
