I own it but haven't read yet.

The story in it "Buffalo Jump" is a western...


The story that most caught my eye was "Storm Blood"...

The mythological creature is a Rougarou apparently.

And there is another story that brings back Harrigan (glover) from Predator 2.


Oh wow I might just go buy that since it sounds like fun and they've brought back both both Steven Perry and S. D. Perry, who in my view wrote the best novels in the franchise and I love the idea of them following up on Harrigan because predator 2 is my favourite film in the predator series. Plus I love werewolves so this sells it to me ^_^

Over the centuries, extraterrestrial hunters of the Yautja race also known as the Predators have encountered (and stalked) humans on Earth and in the depths of space. Offered here are sixteen all-new stories of such hunts, written by many of today s most extraordinary authors: Kevin J. Anderson, Jennifer Brozek, Larry Correia, Mira Grant, Tim Lebbon, Jonathan Maberry, Andrew Mayne, Weston Ochse, S. D. Perry, Steve Perry, Jeremy Robinson, John Shirley, Bryan Thomas Schmidt and Holly Roberds, Peter J. Wacks and David Boop, Wendy N. Wagner, Dayton Ward.

Inspired by the events of the original Predator movies, graphic novels, and novels, these adventures pit hunter against prey in life-and-death struggles where there can be only one victor.

I wish Hollywood was bold enough to do a Predator sequel (prequel?) set in the old west, or medieval Europe, or something.

Same here, like bring it back to pure basics and its bloody R rated roots, no super predators crazy weapons just real dark creature fear of being hunted by something as smart as you are which is hugely powerful and the person or group being vastly out gunned as that was what made Predator, Predator 2 terrifying this idea that your just so out of your league compared to the Yautja.

Predators are attracted to heat and conflict. (Why did they set the first AVP movie at the fucking south pole again?)

  • Vietnam War
  • Crusades
  • World War II European and North African theater
  • World War II Japanese theater
  • Mongol invasions
  • Punic Wars
  • Wild West
  • American Civil War
  • Rebellion in Haiti
  • Boer War
  • Spanish Civil War
  • Spanish landing in Mexico

The knights and castles Predator idea would be really fresh. They keep taking these sequels and giving the Predators more ludicrous tech and in turn giving the humans more and more guns and firepower and stupidity. If they really want to go "back to basics" they should do a tightly scripted 90-100 minute Predator movie with one Predator, say, both sides during the Battle of Hattin in 1187 AD.

(I have to say, I actually enjoyed *Predators*. It's the only sequel besides the second one that I liked)

Yeah the thing in dumb about the snow and the comics and novels imply that Yautja have way more trouble regulating there heat than we do and feel the cold way more hence why they have the netting as it keeps them warm but yeah as much as I think AVP is a guilty pleasure romp, the whole south pole thing just felt kind of off base even for me. Plus Anderson couldn't even put the right type of penguin crawling around the Victorian whaling stations ruins...and that Alien Queen is not dead she'll proberbly just go to sleep in the ice water and become someone else's problem decades later...

Though there is one comic set in the cold which is cold war which is set in Soviet Siberia but that was a single predator and I got the impression he crashed his ship there along with his clan. http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Predator:_Cold_War (EDIT)

Here is a really solid Predator fan film set during the crusades - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRD8jAk274I

At this point the comics have done most alternate unique locations you could think of, filmmakers direly need to adapt or take strong influence from those.

I have 2 hopes for this franchise...

(A.) This won't happen because The Predator unperformed (and a Asian lead female is sadly unlikely), a faithful big budget adaption of the Machiko Noguchi storyline from the AVP comics/novels just without Xenomorphs, create some fresh alien threat for them to hunt.

(B.) This is more reasonable, a anthology series on Netflix/HBO, 9 episode seasons, 3 3 episode arcs each season with different locations/time periods & cast. Adapt some of the comics/novels and create some original stories.

2 possible reasons, the pyramid under the ice was built before the arctic froze over or it's was done specifically so that the young Predators being sent there in their rite of passage would have a even harder time.

View Original PostChuckman wrote:(I have to say, I actually enjoyed *Predators*. It's the only sequel besides the second one that I liked)

Same. I enjoy the original 3 equally, I would have used to say 2 was better then the original but on my most recent re watch some of the early scenes with Bill Paxton & María Conchita Alonso are really grating and I can see the strong cultural stereotypes upsetting people, everything else about 2 I love.
I see people saying both Glover & Brody were non believable leads, I thought both of them did great jobs.

Thoughts on The Predator? I haven't seen it.

I read the novel version of Cold War, there was multiple Preds but the reason they were in the cold is because they actually crashed.
There is a sequence with a guy in some outpost walking in on them gathered around the main furnace in the basement for heat.

I would accept the explanation for the AvP setting, except that Antarctica was ice-locked before humans evolved, wasn't it? The flashbacks showed the predators using humans to grow the xenomorphs.

I was ill and couldn't get out much so I didn't get to a theater for The Predator, sadly. I'll have to wait until it streams.

I would love to see Machiko Noguchi story in film but I agree Hollywood will not take it and they won't use an Asian actress, but if Neflix picked it up I'd totality go for that. Though I'll be honest and say I'm not a fan off the Three World War comic like I love the art and concept but I don't dig the story I prefer the first two graphic novels Alien Vs Predator and War and Neca is now bringing out toys based on the comics and they have Machiko and Broken Tusk so I'm hoping it will help more people get to know who she is.

I read the novel version of Cold War, there was multiple Preds but the reason they were in the cold is because they actually crashed.

Ah thanks for clarification I own it but I had no time last night to dig it out and reread so I was going by my memory and it was rusty ^_^
