The latest Predator movie has apparently wrapped filming according to Collider; the title is currently Skulls and as expected it has a female lead so I’m wondering if it’s that awful synopsis from a few months back which you can read below.
SYNOPSIS: Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as 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 way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.
Thank God they mention gender norms twice in the synopsis… for a Predator film.
Also, it sounds like this could be PG-13 so it sounds even worse that 2018’s The Predator – Producer John Davis said “it all depends on how you end up cutting it, right? It was conceived as an R-rated movie. It could easily end up PG-13. I guess I’m going to find out what it has to be or what it is when it’s all cut together.”
Personally, I think they should just leave these 80’s franchises alone; they are a product of the time which no one one seems able to recapture so let’s just leave them be…
