The Predator franchise is back with an interesting and unusual new entry. Prey is not only a prequel to the earlier movies, it’s set hundreds of years before any of the previous installments. It follows a young Comanche woman named Naru trying to prove her worth as a hunter to her tribe — just as an alien hunter (AKA the Predator) lands on Earth looking to hunt some of the local creatures.
What follows features some interesting parallels to the original Predator movie from 1987, and in our latest video we explore all the ways Prey echoes Predator in its structure, visuals, and plot. We also look at the parallels between Naru and the Predator, and at some of the hidden Easter eggs from throughout the Predator franchise you might have missed, and dive into what the ending means for this film and the future of the Predator franchise at large. (Like, literally the future. Hundreds of years into the future.) Watch it below:
