The Predator [2018] With R-Rating in Cinemas

Shane Black Raises Fan Anticipation For Sequel

Even though The Predator's theatrical release date is slated for 2018, fans have high hopes for the sort-of sequel to the Schwarzenegger classic. Especially since the films that followed since did not entirely convince either critics nor fans of the alien killer. Scribe and director Shane Black has thus a considerable weight on his shoulders but he's also known for his quality work as both a scriptwriter (Lethal Weapon franchise) and director (Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys).

In an interview with Den of Geek, Black did not hesitate to stress that he wants The Predator to be "R"-rated:

It’s an odd thing. Whether Deadpool helped is an open question, but I suspect it did. I made a condition of my participation with Predator that it be the same rating as the first movie, and the first movie was rated R. In other words, I don’t want to cut away every time the Predator does something violent. I was watching the American version of The Grudge, which was PG-13, and I remember being so frustrated by the fact that everything that was scary in the Japanese version, they had to cut away from in the PG-13 American version.

There’s also a sensibility and a sense of brooding menace and we can have fun but there’s an element of horror that’s unmistakable in The Predator”. I don’t want to have to compromise it by just treating it like a popcorn film. That said, I hope there’s some popcorn viewing available in it, too. It’s an R-rated popcorn movie, which is the best kind to me.

These clear statements should be welcomed by fans with joy. Black also seems particularly well-fitted to take the job since he was an actor in the original Predator (in the role of Hawkins) and should know from that experience what essence made the film so memorable. Let's hope Black's intention stands the test of time (and studio exec stubbornness).
