Shane Black tweeted out a picture of The Predator…probably

To be clear, this is almost certainly not The Predator

We’re less than six months out now from the release of Shane Black’s The Predator, the Lethal Weapon writer’s new effort to inject a little menace back into the fight against the infamous extraplanetary hunter. To commemorate the film’s rapidly approaching release, Black released a photo from the film’s set last night, showing…Uh…Well…



Okay, so, it’s certainly possible that this photo contains a picture of the Predator. (A sentence which, on reflection, could apply equally to every photograph, ever.) Certainly, there’s a blue-green shimmer down there near the bottom that might be a glitch in a cloaking device. (Or a moth. Or lens flare. Who knows?) It’s also possible Black is just trolling us, or that he simply wanted to show off one of his favorite instances of forest-based photography. At least we know the picture doesn’t contain any of the other members of the film’s cast, which includes Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, and Sterling K. Brown. (Unless they’re hiding, of course; Jesus, how deep does this thing go?!)
