Prey It will be the prequel to the franchise that began in 1987 with the action hit Predatorstarring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers y Jesse Ventura. The film spawned a franchise with multiple sequels and 2 crossovers with the franchise. Alien.
Set 300 years before the events of the original Predator, Prey will focus on Naru (Amber Midthunder), a young Comanche hunter who faces a ruthless alien creature.

However, although the villain’s costume is not the usual one, there will be a detail recognizable by fans of both the saga Predator like Alien.
In an interview with ComicBook on the san diego comic con, Trachtenberg spoke of a connection with the film Alien in the new suit Predator of Prey. Speaking about the practical effects of the film, the director explained that he added some of the slimy “goo” used in Alien to do to Predator much more “violent and disgusting”.
“There are two versions of the face. There was a stunt version that didn’t have any moves, which was a little, just a little safer for Dane to work well. And there was another version that was heavier for Dane because he had all the animatronics in it. And one of the things that we added in this movie that strangely wasn’t there, I think wasn’t in the other Predator movies, was the slime. We brought back some alien slime, the stuff we’ve seen in the Alien movies. So the jaws and the face and all that stuff just seemed a lot more violent and gross.”
when the first Xenomorfo was revealed in the original movie Alien, dripped a combination of water, due to nearby condensation, and slimy slime that oozed from the creature’s mouth. As the film became a franchise, mucous slime appeared in Alien throughout the series. Trachtenberg He understands that adding the translucent slime would increase the fearsome effect he is trying to convey with the already terrifying face of the Predator.
Prey will arrive in Spain on October 5 through Disney +.
