The Predator (2018)
Starring: Boyd Holbrooke, Olivia Munn, Sterling K Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane
Directed By: Shane Black
For being one of Hollywood’s most iconic monsters, The Predator sure hasn’t had very many great movies. Sure, the 1987 original is a classic, and I’ll always got to bat for Predators, the 2010 attempt at rebooting the franchise, but by and large ol’ mandible face has always had a tough time at the cineplex (I know there are some who’ll champion Predator II, but I’m not one of them).
