Predators – First sneak peak and a poster

Posted by LiveFor on March 13, 2010


A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

Check out the Predator Dog below via io9 and the poster from STYD.

The footage debuted at SXSW.

What do you reckon? Is this the film to bring the Predator back to the forefront of kick-ass monster action?

Predators – Photos from the shoot. Look at the Predators

Posted by LiveFor on January 16, 2010


Here are some great behind the scenes photos from Nimród Antal directed Predators produced by Robert Rodriguez. You can see Adrien Brody and a whole heap of Predators. Lots more pics here.

The film follows the story of a group of people (soldiers, cops, killers etc) who find themselves stranded on an alien planet and are “hunted by members of a merciless alien race known as Predators.”

The main cast is as follows:
* Royce, a Steve McQueen type – Adrien Brody
* Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer for a drug cartel who has twin uzis strapped to his back – Danny Trejo
* Nikolai, a bear of a Russian armed with a four-barrel gas-powered rotary machine gun – Oleg Taktarov
* Isabelle, a French woman armed with a sniper rifle – Alice Braga
* Stans, a San Quentin prisoner with a shaved head, a scorpion tatto on his neck and armed with a prison-made knife – Maybe Walter Goggins
* Mombasa, an African member of the Sierra Leone death squad – Mahershalalhashbaz Ali
* Hanzo, a bad ass Japanese Yakuza enforcer
* Edwin, an unassuming man who was formerly on the FBI’s most-wanted list – possibly Topher Grace

So I think we are seeing Mombasa, Nikolai and Royce. Now if we only knew who Laurence Fishburne was playing.

Armored – Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, and Laurence Fishburne have a plan to make some money

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2009

A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.

Starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco (who is currently filming The Rum Diary with Johnny Depp in Puerto Rico), Fred Ward, Skeet Ulrich, Columbus Short (who is down to star in the adaption of The Losers) and Milo Ventimiglia it certainly has got some big name action stars in there.

Always good to see Fred Ward. I loved him in Tremors and Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous (Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins if you live in the USA).

Armored (keep wanting to type Armoured) is directed by Nimród Antal who, not only sharing a name with a mutant killing robot from the X-Men comics, also made Vacancy.
Collider had the poster and photos and Trailer Addict had the trailer. Watching it this looks like it will be of the old school variety and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of old school action now and again.
