While the attempted relaunch of The Predator franchise didn’t quite resonate with fans or movie goers, the film did provide all new Predator designs for collectors and fans. The Fugitive Predator was the focus of the marketing, but the most dangerous creature in the film was the “Ultimate” Predator, who is also known as the Armored Assassin Predator. In the film, it’s concluded that the Yautja have been split into rival factions. The majority opting for genetic experimentation, taking on the strongest traits of the prey they hunt. While the others feel this is against their code. The Fugitive Predator heads to Earth, in the hopes of bringing a “gift” to mankind that will even the odds against the upgraded Predators looking to take the planet from humanity. The Assassin Predator is larger, stronger, faster and more resistant to attacks.
