Shane Black's The Predator assaulted theaters starting last week with its suburban invasion of heavily armed Yautja warriors and plenty of gung-ho commando craziness.
The sci-fi sequel, set in the same universe as John McTiernan's original 1987 classic, Predator, has garnered semi-decent reviews and a lower-than-expected $24 million opening off an estimated $88 million budget. But, with Halloween season coming up, it could find some box-office legs.
If you're still yearning for more intimate details of the creative process that went into the visceral cinematic event, London-based Titan Books is unleashing a fascinating official companion book to the September sci-fi tentpole, fully loaded with 160 pages of stunning concept art, monster design sketches, never-seen stills, and behind-the-scenes photography from the entire filming process.
The Predator: The Art and Making of the Film was written by James Nolan and delivers a unique perspective on the laborious preproduction stages and artistic involvement from a talented team of artists, writers, painters, creature designers, make-up technicians, set decorators, model makers, propmasters, and costumers. Titan's illuminating edition also provides comprehensive interviews with the cast and crew highlighting the evolution of the screen story and the challenges faced while bringing a fresh chapter in this blockbuster property to life.
Pre-orders are available now, with the official release landing on September 25.
