In the summer of 1987, I was playing for a US Basketball Team touring Italy for a month and a half.  It’s always been funny to me that one of the things I remember most about that trip, was the weekend I spent in New York City before leaving for Milan.  Growing up in Texas, going to the movies was like it is here.  These buildings with 6-12 theaters is where you went.  In NYC, each movie has its own theater, and the one I walked into the night before my flight?

Since then, I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for this movie and its spawns.  There have been three “sequels” and a couple of other movies that pitted “The Predator” against the monster from “Alien.”  The last of which “The Predator,” was a cool movie, but did not exactly set the box office on fire.  So, I just figured the franchise was over.  I was wrong.

Jeff Cutter is this movie’s cinematographer.  “Skulls” is the title that was being used to throw people off the scent of a sequel.  And it’s a wrap in terms of production.  Now, in terms of story, this is where this “Predator” is unique.  A period movie, this one set during the American Civil War.  In other words more than 200 years BEFORE the original.  The film is said to tell the story of a Comanche woman who goes against her tribe’s norms to become a great warrior.  No word on when this “Predator” will hit screens, but you can bet I’ll be there.
