The Predator gets a second trailer

Been at war with stomach flu and a head cold (yes, all at once) this weekend, so finally at a point where I had the energy to get up and post something. Given The Predator was granted a second trailer by the folks at 20th Century Fox, I figured I'd tackle that.

The teaser for Shane Black's sequel to the 1987 action classic came out a month ago, and left a lot of people underwhelmed. I'm not sure why, or what said people expected, as it worked for me. There was action, the titular monster, and some trademark Black humour. I got what I wanted.

This trailer, which hit yesterday, offers more action and even more of the titular monster. Suffice to say, I'm still sold on this one. But I'll let the rest of you decide for yourselves by dropping this bad boy right here:

The Predator is written by Black and his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker. Black also sits in the director's chair. His presence alone guarantees success to me, given his pedigree as an action writer and as director of Iron Man 3, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys.

We'll know for sure how this'll turn out when The Predator hits theatres Sept. 14.

Review: The Proposal (2018)

"Admit it: that was cool as fuck."

Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and there's no better way to sum the film up. Although just 10 or so minutes long, The Proposal is everything an action fan could ask for.

In fact, the only complaint I've got is I wanted more!
