'Prey' Trailer - 'Predator' Prequel Brings a Very Different Hunting Experience to Hulu on August 5th
They hunt to live. It lives to hunt.
From Dan Trachtenberg, director of 10 Cloverfield Lane, the Predator franchise returns this summer with a prequel film that's set centuries in the past. 20th Century Studios will be bringing Prey exclusively to Hulu on August 5th.
Ahead of the film's streaming premiere, Hulu has released the full official trailer, which features Amber Midthunder‘s main character, a Comanche warrior, facing off against the galaxy’s deadliest hunter, the iconic Predator.
In the film, "Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries."
We're already fantasizing about how if Prey is successful, we could end up seeing more Predator stories in different time periods. Predator facing off against pirates, knights, gladiators, and on, and on... The possibilities are endless!
While we wait for Prey's arrival on Hulu, check out the totally badass trailer and new poster artwork below!
Prey is written by Patrick Aison (Jack Ryan, Treadstone), and produced by John Davis (Jungle Cruise, The Predator) and Jhane Myers (Monsters of God), with Lawrence Gordon (Watchmen), Marty Ewing (It: Chapter Two), James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas and Marc Toberoff (Fantasy Island) serving as executive producers.
The filmmakers were committed to creating a film that provides an accurate portrayal of the Comanche and brings a level of authenticity that rings true to its Indigenous peoples. Myers, an acclaimed filmmaker, Sundance Fellow and member of the Comanche nation herself, is known for her attention and dedication to films surrounding the Comanche and Blackfeet nations and her passion for honoring the legacies of the Native communities. As a result, the film features a cast comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation’s talent, including Amber Midthunder (The Ice Road, Hell or High Water, 14 Cameras), newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (Sooyii), Michelle Thrush (The Journey Home), and Julian Black Antelope ("Tribal", Don't Say Its Name).
