The Predator started out 2018 as one of the year's most anticipated movies, but I think it is fair to say that the marketing for the film hasn't been overwhelmingly awesome as of yet. A few months back, CinemaBlend's own Mike Reyes argued that The Predator needed to hurry up and release a red-band trailer to show off the film's mature content. And although a red-band trailer has been released since, more is better. Now, in advance of The Predator's release in two weeks time, there is a new trailer and it's the best one yet, teasing an epic action movie that earns its R rating. Check out The Predator NSFW trailer below:

Now that's more like it. The focus here isn't on the kid or the stuff with the hybridization, but instead on the action and the humor. This trailer also makes it clearer than anything else that has been shown so far that The Predator is indeed a Shane Black movie and all the vulgarity that comes along with that will not be absent in this film. What's great is how this trailer manages to balance the intense action, the adult humor and the scariness of the Predators, and it all works. The team dynamic on display among the characters looks like it will be a real highlight of the movie and the Predators themselves look awesome, especially the super sized Ultimate Predator. There's also some fun, self-aware Shane Black humor when Olivia Munn's character comments that Predators should really be called sport hunters but Sterling K. Brown's character responds that "Predator is cooler," indeed it is.

It doesn't look like this movie will be holding back on the gore either. There are a couple shots that stand out showing just how violent and bloody facing off with extraterrestrial hunters can be. There is one very gnarly shot where the Predator shoots his spear through a guy and the blood drips off the chain, and towards the end of the trailer there is a shot where one of the Predators is just gutting a dude with his wrist blades and it is extremely badass. So, that R rating is no accident.

The Predator had to undergo some major third act reshoots to make the film's ending scarier, so we'll see how that turns out and, hopefully, this new film becomes a worthy entry in the Predator franchise. This trailer certainly shows off the kind of NSFW goodness we are hoping for from this movie. The Predator is tracking a $30 million opening when it faces off against A Simple Favor and White Boy Rick.

The hunt begins when The Predator opens in theaters on September 14th. Check out our release schedule for all the biggest movies still to come this year.
