After a new trailer, 20th Century Studios announced this preythe fifth movie in the predator franchise, will be available on Hulu entirely in Comanche as a language option or with Comanche subtitles. This is the first time a feature-length film has been made available entirely in the Comanche language on a streaming platform.
A restart of fighting predator Series, prey was already announced in 2020 with a director Dan Trachtenberg at the helm. A teaser trailer was unveiled last month, revealing what many humorously referred to as this film apocalypto in which predator Universe. If it does indeed resemble this film, which famously features a cast of Native American and Indigenous Mexican actors, it would be an admirably risky (and genuinely refreshing) move by the studio.
prey takes place 300 years ago in the Comanche Nation and tells the story of a young warrior named Naru. But when a “sophisticated” alien predator threatens her people, Naru must rely on her skills to defeat the Predator and its advanced arsenal.
Trachtenberg is definitely a good choice to direct the film. He burst onto the stage with the underestimated 10 Cloverfield Laneand then wasted a lot of time developing the Unexplored Movie. But when that didn’t work out, he made episodes of The young, The Lost Icon and black mirror. This is the third attempt at a reboot of the Predator franchise Nimrod Antal‘s predators and Shane Black‘s The robbernone of which really wowed fans.
prey is written by Patrick Azon (jack ryan, stepping stone) and produced by John Davis (jungle cruise, The robber), Jhane Myers (monsters of god), and Martin Ewing (It: chapter two), With Lawrence Gordon (Guardian), Ben Rosenblatt (snowpiercer), James E.Thomas, John C Thomas and Marc Toberoff (fantasy island) serve as executive producers.
The studio strives to portray indigenous people as authentically as possible. To that end, the film features a native Comanche producer (Myers) and a cast composed almost entirely of Aboriginal and First Nations talent, including Amber Middonner (The Ice Road), newbie Dakota Beaver, Stormee Kipp (sooyii), Michelle choke (The journey home) and Julian Black Antelope (tribal). Dane DiLiegro (American Horror Stories) plays the Predator.
prey is expected to release August 5th on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ worldwide. You can watch the new trailer here and read the official synopsis below:
Set 300 years ago in the Comanche nation, Prey tells the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She grew up in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters to roam the Great Plains, and when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she pursues and ultimately confronts turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technologically advanced arsenal, leading to a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
