The DVD and Blu-ray release of Robert Rodriguez‘s much-anticipated reboot, Predators (Read: Movie Review: Predators), doesn’t come until October 19, but details on the discs and what features they will offer have been released by 20th Century Fox to allow you some insight into which you’ll want to pick up when the time comes.
The movie takes place on a Predator inhabited planet, where a group of Earth’s most-deadly and dangerous killers — soldiers, murderers, crime lords, special forces — have all been brought there as worthy prey for the ultimate hunter species. It returns us to the fun we had watching in the 1987 original Arnold Schwarzenegger film, which had since been lost in Alien vs. Predators and AvP: Requiem.
The NimrÃ³d Antal directed movie stars Adrien Brody, Danny Trejo, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Oleg Taktarov, Walt Goggins, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and Laurence Fishburn.

As promised, a trailer for the Robert Rodriguez produced and NimrÃ³d Antal directed reboot, Predators, has been unleashed online.
The trailer is pretty awesome and it begins by showing us the group of humans after they’ve first been brought to this mysterious jungle planet. After that, you’ll get to peek at each of the cast and see a lot of tense moments as the humans fight to survive, as well as a few peeks at the vicious Predators who are hunting them. Overall, it’s a very effective trailer; it looks like they nailed the tone of 1987’s Predator while adding some nasty new creatures and a hell of a lot more of them than the one deadly alien from the original film.
Remain in the shadows and cautiously make your way over to the other side to watch the first trailer for Predators!
A collection of behind the scenes images of the set of the Robert Rodriguez produced and NimrÃ³d Antal directed reboot, Predators, have found their way onto the web.
In the images, you’ll see a lot of the cast including Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Oleg Taktarov, Alice Braga, and others. You’ll also get a little peek at some of the Predators themselves, though it must be kept in mind that these are grainy, low-quality images and this isn’t what the elusive creatures will look like when they’re ultra-enhanced with digital texture glory!
Looking at these, I have to assume that maybe it was Mr. Taktarov’s camera? He’s in most of the images you’ll see, and in the ones he isn’t, I found myself wondering if he was behind the lens. Taktarov is a former UFC and mixed martial arts champion who has done a few movies before, like 15 Minutes and Bad Boys II.

Be warned: some of these images may be considered spoiler-worthy, so avoid if that stuff bothers you. Being someone who hates spoilers myself, I wasn’t affected by the images, but your experience may differ.
Not too long ago, word came out that Danny Trejo (Con Air, Desperado) was the first name to be cast in Predators — the new reboot directed by NimrÃ³d Antal and produced by Robert Rodriguez and his Troublemaker Studios. That news was immediately followed up by a script review that filled us in on all of the dirty details, as well as the many cool and exciting characters that we would see battling to survive the vicious creatures in the movie (Read: Script Review Of Robert Rodriguez’s “˜Predators’ Reveals All Kinds Of Juicy Details; Our Dream Cast Shared!). With one swift blow, the majority of the actors who will be filling these excellent roles has now been revealed, and while they are not the part of the fantasy cast we put together, there’s not denying that it’s an interesting group.
The list of names includes Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist, King Kong); Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3, That 70s Show) is currently in negotiations; Alice Braga (City of God, I Am Legend); Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (The 4400, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button); Walt Goggins (The Shield, Shanghai Noon); and former UFC star Oleg Taktarov (Bad Boys 2, 15 Minutes).
