The nationwide opening of Predators is today and, though the alien hunter has appeared in one sequel; two team-up movies with the Aliens franchise; and countless comic books and video games, for many fans this movie is the long-awaited sequel to the one true vision of the character, director John McTiernan's 1987 Predator.
Predators ignores Predator 2, which moved the action from the jungles of South America to near-future Los Angeles, a decision that producer Robert Rodriguez said that 20th Century Fox had already made way back in 1995 when they originally contracted him to write the movie. In a recent interview with Collider, Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal discuss the importance of the jungle environment to the movie and the casting of Adrien Brody and Alice Braga as butt-kicking killers stranded on a planet designed by the Predators for hunting humans.
