Disney hosted a special event at the San Diego Comic-Con, where film fans were treated to an advance screening of 20th Century Studios’ action-thriller “Prey”. Immediately following the screening at the Mission Valley AMC 20, the cast and filmmakers from the latest entry in the “Predator” franchise participated in a Q&A hosted by Collider’s Steve Weintraub. Participants included Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, director Dan Trachtenberg and producer Jhane Myers.
Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, “Prey” is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
Here are some photos from the event:
“Prey” stars Amber Midthunder (“The Ice Road,” “Roswell, New Mexico”), newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (“Sooyii”), Michelle Thrush (“The Journey Home”), Julian Black Antelope (“Tribal”), and Dane DiLiegro (“American Horror Stories”) as the Predator.
The film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg and written by Patrick Aison (“Jack Ryan,” “Treadstone”), with a story by Patrick Aison & Dan Trachtenberg based on characters created by Jim Thomas & John Thomas. It is produced by John Davis (“Jungle Cruise,” “Predator”), Jhane Myers (“Monsters of God”), and Marty Ewing (“It: Chapter Two”), with Lawrence Gordon (“Watchmen”), Ben Rosenblatt (“Snowpiercer”), James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas, and Marc Toberoff (“Fantasy Island”) serving as executive producers.
“Prey” will stream on August 5th, 2022, as a Hulu Original in the U.S. and as a Star Original on Star+ in Latin America, and on Disney+ in all other territories.
