 The cast

The saga

John McTiernan's original 'Predator' kicked off the saga. The film was released back in 1987 and saw Arnold Schwarzenegger lead a team of mercenaries to fight back against the alien.

The following films in the saga could never live up to the success of the first. In 1990 came 'Predator 2' with a change of cast and director.

In 2004 came the 'Alien vs. Predator' crossover that managed to rake in ticket sales but couldn't convince critics. 2010's 'Predators', a third sequel to the original storyline, saw Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne and Oscar award winner Mahershala Ali go up against the same monster.

Will the remake manage to do justice to the original film? We'll have to wait and see, but for now, we'll revel in the trailer.
