The Original Ending For THE PREDATOR Would Have Brought Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dutch Back


I was not a big fan of the way that The Predator ended. It was laughably bad. The original ended that was written would have been much better because it would have brought back Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from the first film, Dutch. Unfortunately, it the role was too small for Schwarzenegger, so he passed on it, which was a bummer. Thanks to Birth Movies Death, we have some details on how that original ending would have played out. But first, I want to talk about the ending we see in the movie:

Well… Shane Black Has Killed The Predator Franchise With THE PREDATOR

So, I saw The Predator last night. I was really excited about this movie! I’m such a huge fan of the franchise and I was hoping so badly that it would be a good movie!

Director Shane Black has killed the Predator franchise!  The movie was laughably bad with a terrible script filled with some of the most god-awful dialogue. There were aspects of the film had audiences members cringing throughout the movie.

Early on in the film, when Olivia Munn’s character sees the Predator for the first time, she says “You’re one beautiful mother fucker.” Which is, as you know, is supposed to be a call back to the original film where Arnold Schwarzenegger says, “You’re one ugly mother fucker.” From that moment on, I knew the film was going to be all downhill from there and it totally was.

Director Shane Black Hypes ‘The Predator’ As An Expensive “Spectacle”!

PREDATOR 2 via Fox

After the 1990 film Predator 2, Twentieth Century Fox lost focus on both their Predator and Alien franchises, releasing the underwhelming Alien vs. Predator, it’s even cheaper R-rated sequel, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, and then the Robert Rodriguez-produced reboot/sequel Predators.

Thanks to Marvel and their cinematic universe, every studio executive is shifting focus. There’s all sorts of eventized franchises afoot, whether it’s X-Men, Planet of the Apes or Ridley Scott’s new Alien trilogy.

Fox was quick to adapt, being one of the first studios to start spending money on respectable reboots. And while some failed (Fantastic Four), others have flourished. Prometheus, for example, has opened up the door for a mega-sized Predator follow-up, which is being directed by Shane Black. Continue reading
