It makes use of sounds not found in any human language, so why does it map perfectly to the English alphabet? That right there's some lazy work.

I didn't write this its off the fan site and is shown on the Alien Vs Predator wiki and I don't know where the fans got the translations from but I see your point perfectly it is lazy and I don't see this idea working movie wise. It would be much easier to have a predator speaking in human language fully than have a human learn a language that has never been spoken in the movie franchise once and that the general viewer will not get unless they've read the comics and books. Where as they could grasp the idea better of a predator talking to a human as in the movies there shown to pick up random words and phases and mock human beings with them.

Sorry, that wasn't meant to be a dig at you. And yeah, since we know the predators can mimic human speech it makes sense for them to pick up languages rather than an autistic human; it's not that the latter's impossible so much as that the former is well-established lore within the setting.

No worries I didn't see it that way and I agree a predator talking just makes way more sense and it might suite the story better in that the predator could do it to the human character first to take the piss or belittle him/her its just over time as the two characters draw a connection and come to an understanding the predator could start to use the language fully and much more seriously. I remember watching predators and thinking that all off those predators should have been talking to the humans both to mock and harass them as its believed by some that they are in essence bad bloods (Hunters who don't conform to the rules of honour or codes and are criminals) as your meant to visit humans for sport and kill them not steal them and stick them in a space safari park.

A... version of the official plot has leaked online, it may be revised by now.

>30 years after the events of THE PREDATOR and PREDATOR 2, Lieutenant Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) is the leader of an elite team of Special Forces operatives. During a covert misson in Cuba to assassinate a drug lord, Quinn and his team happen upon a seemingly dead Predator in the wreckage of a crashed spaceship, and Quinn retrieves a piece of the alien's technology, which he sends to his estranged son Rory McKenna (Jacob Tremblay), an autistic savant who lives with Quinn's ex-wife in the suburbs, unaware of what it truly is.

>Quinn and his unit are later captured by CIA agent John Traeger (Sterling K. Brown), the leader of a secret department investigating alien activity on Earth and particularly the Predator's previous appearances in South America and Los Angeles. While they are being interrogated by Traeger, the Predator awakens and escapes to retrieve the stolen technology, and Quinn and Traeger begrudgingly join forces to reach the Rory and the piece first.

>Quinn and Traeger are aided by Quinn's team and Casey Beckett (Olivia Munn), a Berkeley University professor affiliated with Traeger's organization and specialized in Evolutionary Biology. Against them are not only the fugitive Predator, but also a ragtag team of Army lunatics, monstrous hybrids, alien hounds and a ten feet tall genetically enhanced monster known as "Predator 2.0".

^ you had me until the last part. . . Still, at least it's a better plot than AVP and AVPR. Given the circumstances i'll take it.

But here's what I'm worried about. How serious are they going to try to make this?

>Holbrook: “I’m currently working on Predator. It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real. It’s real fresh. I don’t think you’re going to see [Arnold] Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. It’s horror, science-fiction and a western.”

Please dear God let them release a Predator movie set in the Old West. I didn't know how much I needed that.

Two out of three of those paragraphs are fine, but the last is ass. If half of that crap is in the movie it will be a shitshow that leaves us begging the studios to give the franchise the Old Yeller treatment out of mercy.

Also, a Predator western is fucking brilliant and must be made.

There is a comic about that which is Predator vs red indians/wildwest. http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Predator:_Blood_on_Two-Witch_Mesa

What I want is a movie where Arnold, playing a leathery old sheriff, must defeat the Predator during some kind of large scale conflict. Maybe it's a homage to Fhe Magnificent Seven, Rio Bravo, and other "town vs outsider bad guys" Westerns with the twist that the good and bad guys spend the third act holed up fighting the Predator as it picks them off one by one.

I want Clint Eastwood to play the mayor (who dies a beautiful death fighting the Predator) and Stallone in the movie as a grizzled half-Indian mountain man and tracker.

Get a bunch of action stars to play the outlaws and have cameos from all the scream queens. End the movie with he plucky mayor's daughter played by Kate Mara luring the Predator into a series of elaborate traps that ends with a blast of dynamite before she kills it with a shovel and the other Predators give her a trophy and facial markings.

Oh, and make the Predator super old and scarred in keeping with the theme of the movie.

Also drop subtle hints all the way that all the movies with Arnold playing action stars are in the same universe and the Sheriff Arnold is their ancestor.
