Anyone disappointed that they didn’t get to see last year’s awesome Predator-prequel Prey in theaters will soon get the next best thing. The streaming title is getting its very own 4K/Blu-ray release next week and io9 has an exclusive clip from the special features.
Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, Prey stars Amber Midthunder as Naru, a young Comanche woman who finds herself, and her tribe, in a battle with a mysterious creature. One that, we soon realize, is very similar to the Predators we saw Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover tangle with over 30 years ago. It’s a phenomenal movie and even though it debuted on Hulu, it’s now getting its own physical release on October 3. The release comes with all manner of special features (see the full list below), but here’s a little taste, exclusive to io9, with Trachtenberg talking about the evolution, or rather devolution, of the Predator’s weapons in the film.
