    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Go for it. This series (like Indiana Jones) should've continued every 5-7 years. Who cares if some suck, keep swinging.

    Sounds like there were supposed to be some surprises in store, and Trachtenberg is pretty pissed that even the movie's existence has been made public.

    Yeah, I saw that. Seems like they were maybe planning on not marketing it as a Predator movie and you'd find out that it was as you were watching it. Would definitely suck to have that spoiled if that was a big part of your plan. But that bubble would get burst pretty quickly upon release so there should be more than that to hang your hat on if it's going to be a good movie overall.

    Called "Skull" and it's an origin story on when Predator's first came to Earth.

    I had no idea this was actually happening, let alone 3/4 through production.

    Sounds like it's a strong throwback chronologically. Lead character may even be like post-Neanderthal or something.

    Oh.......Hulu. It, uh, sorta looks like a fan film.

    Well, sigh, I like Trachtenberg quite a bit, so I'm hoping it's fun at least, but the teaser is a little whelming.

    I do like the idea of old technology vs. Predator at least.

    It could be good. I still want one set in Revolutionary War times but this is close enough.

    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on

    Apparently, it's also going to be available dubbed (or subbed? unsure) in Comanche. Neat!

    Yeah this was excellent. Superlative use of setting and great characters. Spare, lean, heartfelt. It works so well.
