Arnold Schwarzenneger at least had modern weapons when he fought a technologically advanced alien in 1987. How long would he have survived with his wits as his main asset? The next episode in the predator Franchise asks us to look into this question. Hulu’s official trailer for prey brings a fierce warrior of the Comanche Nation face to face with the intergalactic invader. That predator precursor prey will once again pit mankind against the legendary, dangerous villain.
prey comes from director Dan Trachtenberg (The Boys, 10 Cloverfield Lane) and writer Patrick Aison (jack ryan). The film will give that predator Franchising a whole new perspective in more ways than one. It takes place three centuries before the original part of the series. And it will introduce a new hero to the story. Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Set 300 years ago in the Comanche nation, Prey tells the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She grew up in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters to roam the Great Plains, and when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she pursues and ultimately confronts turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technologically advanced arsenal, leading to a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
“It lives to hunt…” The ominous memory flashes through the trailer. But our heroine Naru is ready to rush back even though she won’t take on small prey. And she knows how to survive. Not to mention that she fights to protect those she loves. And that will always give you an advantage.
Filmmaker and Sundance Fellow Jhane Myers (monsters of god) serves as a producer on the predator Precursor. Myers is also a member of the Comanche nation. And the film, which Hulu says is “an accurate portrayal of the Comanche” with an “authenticity befitting their indigenous peoples,” features a cast composed “almost entirely of native and indigenous talent.” These include Amber Midthunder (The Ice Road, Roswell, New Mexico), newcomers Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (sooyii), Michelle Drossel (The journey home) and Julian Black Antelope (tribal).
In addition, A Release announces that “prey will be available on Hulu entirely in Comanche as a language option or with Comanche subtitles, marking the first time a feature-length film has been available entirely in the Comanche language on a direct-to-consumer streaming platform.” These are amazing options the film has to offer.
The chances of anyone surviving an encounter with a Predator are high. But after facing off against such skilled warriors, we may learn why none of them attacked Earth another three centuries later.
At least you don’t have to chase after this movie. prey coming to Hulu exclusively on August 5th.
