THE LATEST OFFERING in the Predator franchise is making waves with sci-fi fans the world over.

We enter the world of the Comanche Nation in 1719. The film follows the story of a young woman Naru – a fierce and highly-skilled warrior on a mission to protect her people.

Naru, played by Amber Midthunder, is battling an alien predator that hunts humans for sport. The predator is equipped with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

Purists will not be let down by the latest incarnation. In fact, this movie offers up a different take as it’s set 300 years prior to the original. 

The film delivers on everything fans would want from a Predator outing; epic battles, impressive weapons and jump scares galore. Refreshingly, it also emits a new energy with compelling characters and nods to Comanche tradition.
