The film is a sequel to the 1990 film Predator 2, although it does not reference that movie's plot and instead has more in common with the original film Predator. Predators concerns a group of hardened individuals with diverse criminal and military backgrounds who find themselves transported to an alien planet where they are hunted by a new breed of Predators.
Meanwhile, the Berserker arrives at the camp and fights the freed classic Predator, beating and decapitating it. The Berserker then activates a remote explosive aboard the departing spaceship, destroying it before it can leave the atmosphere. Royce, however, having had a change of heart, was not on board. He returns to rescue Edwin and a paralyzed Isabelle from the pit. Edwin attempts to attack Royce but is disarmed and himself paralyzed, before Royce booby-traps his body with hand grenades and leaves him for the Berserker Predator. The latter finds Edwin and triggers the trap; the resulting explosion disorients the creature. Royce then sets upon the Predator with a crude bone axe after lighting the surrounding area on fire to mask his own body's heat signature, thus gaining the upper hand. However, the Berserker switches vision modes and duly overpowers its attacker. As the Berserker prepares to finish Royce, Isabelle recovers from her paralysis sufficiently to shoot the creature with her sniper rifle, giving Royce the opportunity to hack off the wounded creature's arm before decapitating it with the bone axe.
On January 15, 2010, Mahershala Ali, who plays Mombasa, stated in an interview that filming on Predators was completed and that a trailer for the film was being developed while they were still filming. "It was a blast. It was an amazing experience. We were in the tropical rain forests of Hawaii stomping through the mud and getting rained on all day and then we ended up finishing in Austin, Texas. I really think this movie is going to be good. They had cut together a trailer while we were still working and it looked amazing. It's a great cast and along with the action elements and the sci-fi elements, and with Robert Rodriguez being involved, I think it's going to push it to another level." The official trailer for Predators was released on March 18, 2010.
The film was released on July 9, 2010. The film grossed roughly $127,200,000 at the box office compared to its $40,000,000 budget, making it a success. It is also the highest grossing Predator movie out of the trilogy (not counting the Alien vs. Predator cross-overs). 2b1af7f3a8
