Predator Hunts A Comanche Warrior In New Prequel Movie

The official Prey trailer arrives revealing the Predator prequel centered on a Comanche warrior facing off against the iconic alien hunter.

The Predator franchise is going back in time for the latest installment, Prey. Amber Midthunder, best known for her roles in Legion and Roswell, New Mexico, is set to star as Naru, a fierce Comanche warrior living on the Great Plains in the early 1700s who finds her tribe threatened by an unknown danger. As she sets out in search of the the threat, Naru is confronted by a Predator, pitting her in a vicious fight for her life.

Alongside Midthunder, the cast for Prey includes Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush, Julian Black Antelope and Dane DiLiegro as the Predator. 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg is at the helm of the latest Predator movie with a script from Wayward Pines and Jack Ryan producer Patrick Aison. Following a couple of years and secretive development and production, audiences are finally getting their first proper taste of what’s to come from Prey.

While The Predator may have left a bad taste in some audiences’ mouths for the property, the official Prey trailer is sure to help build anticipation back up for the action franchise. The video promises a return to the gritty survival horror-like formula of the original Predator film that many of the sequels have been criticized for lacking as Midthunder’s Naru shows off her fighting skills in crafting specialized weapons and environmental camouflage to take on the alien hunter. The Prey trailer also builds effective tension by keeping the Predator largely hidden throughout, save for brief shots of his invisibility suit coated in blood and his using an axe against a group of fur traders.

Aside from the action seen throughout, the Prey trailer also offers a nice glimpse of the efforts to establish Midthunder’s Naru as a female warrior going against gender norms to become a hero. Trachtenberg’s previous feature project saw a similar approach to its heroine with Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Michelle in 10 Cloverfield Lane going from a helpless captive to an alien-killing survivalist, and though the Predator prequel’s protagonist appears to be anything but helpless in the Prey trailer, she looks to be ready to defy the odds in her battle against the iconic alien threat. The wait for Prey is nearly over as the new Predator film hits Hulu on August 5.
