The Predator | Final Trailer | 20th Century FOX.
A Predator ship crash-lands on Earth. U.S. Army Ranger sniper Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) and his team are attacked by the Predator on a hostage retrieval mission. McKenna incapacitates the Predator and has parts of its armor sent by mail to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life. At the behest of government agent Will Traeger (Sterling K. Brown), he is captured and held for examination. Traeger also takes the Predator to a lab for experimentation and observation, recruiting evolutionary biologist Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) to study it. The Predator awakes, breaks out of its bonds, kills lab workers, but spares Bracket, the only unarmed person, before leaving.
McKenna is bussed off with a group of other government captives, including former Marines Gaylord "Nebraska" Williams, Coyle (Keegan-Michael Key), Baxley (Thomas Jane), Lynch (Alfie Allen), and Army helicopter pilot Nettles (Augusto Aguilera). Seeing the Predator escape from the lab firsthand, they hijack the bus. Taking Bracket with them, they head over to McKenna's estranged wife, Emily (Yvonne Strahovski), where he expects to find the Predator armor he mailed off. However, Rory (Jacob Tremblay), McKenna's son with autism has gone trick-or-treating while wearing this armor in hopes of avoiding detection from bullies.
McKenna and the others find his son just in time to stop a pair of Predator hounds (from Predators) from ambushing the boy. McKenna kills one of the dogs by shooting a grenade into its mouth, causing the dog to explode. Nebraska (Trevante Rhodes) accidentally lobotomizes the other dog after shooting it in the head. The Predator chases them into a nearby school. They start to give the Predator's armor back when another, much larger Predator arrives and engages the first in combat. The group flee, and the second Predator kills the first Predator before setting out to retrieve the lost technology.
