Yesterday, we shared a handful of clips from the new Predator movie Prey, which is going to be released through the Hulu streaming service this Friday, August 5th. We also shared the interviews we conducted with director Dan Trachtenberg, cast members Amber Midthunder and Dakota Beavers, and producer Jhane Myers. You can watch the clips at THIS LINK, and the interview video can be found HERE. Now we’ve gotten our hands on a behind-the-scenes featurette that looks at the making of Prey, and you can check that out in the embed above.
Directed by Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) from a screenplay by Patrick Aison (Jack Ryan), Prey has the following synopsis:
Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
A press release notes that “Prey will be available on Hulu entirely in Comanche as a language option, or with Comanche subtitles, which is the first time a feature-length movie on a direct-to-consumer streaming platform has been available in the Comanche language in its entirety.”
John Davis produced Prey with Marty Ewing and Jhane Myers, who is a Native Comanche. Lawrence Gordon, Ben Rosenblatt, James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas, and Marc Toberoff served as executive producers.
Midthunder (Roswell, New Mexico) and Beavers (of the band WesternBoy) are joined in the cast by Stormee Kipp (Sooyii), Michelle Thrush (The Journey Home), Julian Black Antelope (Tribal), Cody Big Tobacco (The Revenant), Skye Pelletier (Burden of Truth), Tymon Carter (The Emigrants), and Harlan Blayne Kytwayhat (Shoresy), with Dane DiLiegro (American Horror Stories), a 6’9″ former basketball player who has experience working in creature suits, as the Predator.
Are you looking forward to Prey? What did you think of the featurette? Share your thoughts on this one by leaving a comment below. My hype level for the movie is very high at this point, I can’t wait to watch it this weekend.
Prey has been rated R for strong bloody violence. The movie was recently screened at the San Diego Comic-Con, and the reactions that came out of that screening were very positive.
Here are a couple new posters for the film:
