The original Predator is set to head back to cinemas this November, 30 years after it first hit screens back in 1987. The Predator re-release comes ahead of the new sequel from Shane Black, which is set for screens in 2018, and frankly, we couldn’t be more excited. More about the chance to see the classic on the big-screen below.

Predator re-release set for 2018

Predator re-release planned for November 2017.

Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads an elite squad of U.S. Army commandos to a remote region of the South American jungle, where they have been assigned to search for officials who have been kidnapped by guerrilla terrorists.

At first, it seems like any other mission: Dutch and his team of seasoned combat veterans spot a guerrilla camp, destroy it, and discover that the men they were sent to rescue have been executed. But when Dutch attempts to lead his unit out, something horrifying and inexplicable begins to happen. One by one the men are killed by a mysterious adversary – a Predator from another world.

Directed by John McTiernan, just a year before Die Hard made him Hollywood’s most sought-after director, Predator has frequently been called the quintessential action movie.

Empire has described the film as ‘a sci-fi and action classic’, and it featured in the Rolling Stone Ten Best Action Movies of All Time.

The date for your diaries is November 9th. From then, you will be able to see this classic action movie on the big screen.

In addition to the UK and Ireland, Park Circus will be releasing Predator in selected international markets throughout Autumn and Winter. Shane Black‘s The Predator, the third film in the iconic series, not including the Alien Vs Predator movies from a decade or so ago, will be released internationally by 20th Century Fox in 2018.
