The awaited ‘The Predator: The Hunt‘ finally debuted on Star+and a connection between the new production and the original films has not gone unnoticed.
At one point in the film, Naru is captured by a group of Frenchmen to lure the Predator. When the plan obviously fails, Naru gets help from one of them: Raphael Adolini.
In ‘predator 2‘, from 1990, the character of Danny Glover receives a “gift” from one of the predators in celebration of his victory: a flintlock pistol with a brass plate that reads “Raphael Adolini 1715”. This is the same weapon that Naru uses in the events of ‘The Predator: The Hunt‘.
In the 1990 movie, the pistol was used to show the story of the Predators on planet Earth, but this element could end up defining the development of a new sequel. at the end of ‘The Predator: The Hunt‘, Naru still has the pistol in her possession, so how did she end up with the Predators? That’s a question only one more film can answer.
It is worth remembering that the feature is already available on Star+!
Dan Trachtenberg (’10 Cloverfield Street’) is in charge of directing.
The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans invaded their land – the Comanche people had a well-defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed to be a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche tradition – she is Patsi – the older sister who helped shape him. Kee is inspiring and has insights that others don’t. Young, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of her people. When an unknown threat puts everyone in danger, Kee will have to show she’s as capable as any other warrior.
