Most people forgot about the lackluster theatrical release of Shane Blacks’s The Predator over this past summer. To trick people into buying it this holiday season and ruining a couple hours, 20th Century Fox released the short The Predator Holiday Special to commemorate the flick’s home media release.
The short film/commercial sends a pack of predators to the North Pole where they proceed to thin out Santa’s reindeer herd before going after the big guy himself. It’s two minutes long, stop-motion, and makes ten times more sense than The Predator did.
Between this and the Die Hard 30th Anniversary Christmas Trailer, this holiday season is a lot bloodier than usual. I’m looking forward to the Christmas-themed version of Alien.
