Real-Life ‘Narcos’ Agents Graduate From Cocaine to Opioids With New Docu-Series

The real-life DEA agents who took down Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar are shopping around a new docu-series about the opioid epidemic, TheWrap has learned.

Steve Murphy and Javier Peña, whose hunt for the Medellin Cartel leader was the focus of the first two seasons of Netflix drama “Narcos,” have teamed up with producers Marty Berman and Michael Horowicz to create a new show that looks at how the DEA is fighting the opioid crisis, as well as was what has happened to international drug cartels since Escobar’s death.

“What we want to do is show people what’s being done and what could be done,” Murphy told TheWrap. “[The opioid epidemic] is now the leading cause of overdose deaths in the county.”

Sterling K. Brown on Playing a ‘Dick’ in ‘The Predator,’ Why Trey Edward Shults’ ‘Waves’ Isn’t a Musical, and ‘Frozen 2’

Sterling K. Brown on Playing a ‘Dick’ in ‘The Predator,’ Why Trey Edward Shults’ ‘Waves’ Isn’t a Musical, and ‘Frozen 2’
Sterling K. Brown’s acting trophies come from portraying kind-hearted good guys: criminal prosecutor Christopher Darden on “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and Randall Pearson, who grew up as the lone black person in his household on “This Is Us.” But the actor told IndieWire he is grateful for chances to “show a slightly different color” this year: He played Wakanda’s traitorous prince in “Black Panther,” an assassin in “Hotel Artemis,” and a dentist with a rap sheet in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” one of his two Emmy-nominated performances this year (along with his network series).

The mean streak continues in “The Predator” (September 14), which premiered its first footage Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con. Shane Black’s sci-fi ensemble features Brown as Will Traeger, an alien technology expert through his Project Stargazer. Studying artifacts from past predator attacks, Traeger is amassing all the knowledge he can about the creatures.

New Poster For The Predator Teases A High Death Toll

Having finally reached the next evolutionary stage, 20th Century Fox wasted no time crescendoing the marketing campaign for The Predator, and rightfully so.

After all, we’ve spent the better part of a decade waiting for for the Jim and John Thomas-created extraterrestrial killing machine to get another shot at a proper sequel, and judging from what’ve seen thus far, Shane Black will be the one to deliver all of the “genre sh*t” we’ve come to expect from the franchise. And seeing as he witnessed the titular monster wreak havoc back in 1987, there isn’t a more suitable man for the job.

Granted, bringing the fictional alien into the twenty-first century wasn’t always pretty – see Alien vs Predator, Alien vs Predator: Requiem and Predators – which I suppose is only fitting, seeing as it is the ugliest motherfucker in the universe, but with The Predator, the eponymous

Things Get Bloody In Awesome New Trailer For The Predator

Having watched the original Predator wreak havoc back in ’87 with his own eyes, director Shane Black knows a thing or two about cinema’s ugliest motherfucker. Which is why we’re hopeful that his star-studded reboot, simply titled The Predator, will be able to deliver the goods when it claws its way into cinemas later this year.

Featuring a who’s who of A-list talent (Boyd Holbrook, Sterling K. Brown and Olivia Munn, to name just a couple), this is a franchise revival that hopes to set things right after Nimród Antal’s misguided reboot from 2010, and it seems that Black and co-writer Fred Dekker have but one goal: make the Predator great again. Such a back-to-basics approach has resulted in a film that’s oozing with sci-fi horror and gritty action, and up above you can lay eyes on the latest trailer, which doesn’t feature much in the

‘The Predator’ Teases Battling Aliens at Gory Comic-Con Panel

‘The Predator’ Teases Battling Aliens at Gory Comic-Con Panel
The predators, those lithe, cunning, befanged extraterrestrials at the heart of the three-decade-old horror franchise, aren’t just content hunting humans. They’re turning on each other now.

The Predator,” Shane Black’s upcoming entry in the series, finds the creatures locked in deadly battle with one another. In a gory scene teased on Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con, Boyd Holbrook, playing a damaged military vet; Jacob Tremblay, as his young son; and Olivia Munn, portraying a shifty scientist, are able to escape their alien pursuer because an even more menacing predator steps in and swipes their attacker aside.

But it’s not a battle of equals. One predator towers over the other — it’s bigger, badder, and far more deadly.

“Are they hunting each other now?” Munn’s character asks as the genetically enhanced predator rips the head off its brethren, leaving the other predator to bleed out.

Here's The Bone-Chilling Comic-Con Poster For The Predator and Panel Details

Here's the Comic-Con poster for Shane Black's The Predator! As you can see, the face of the predator is made up of the bones of its victims. It's a pretty cool poster design and it was revealed during the big panel for the film at the convention.

During the panel, they showed a couple new clips from the film that both continued to sell me on the movie and get me excited. The first clip was a hilariously comedic scene that had the fans busting up in laughter as the special forces team in the movie are trying to talk Olivia Munn into staying with them to make sure they can keep her safe. As this scene plays out we find that the guys were taking bets on how she would react in certain situations, so when she did or said something that they thought she would do that

Here’s What We Saw From ‘The Predator’ in Hall H at Comic-Con
The Predator” invaded San Diego Comic-Con 2018 to give fans in Hall H a new look at the upcoming movie, with director Shane Black and the cast giving a sense of how the latest movie in Fox’s franchise will up the stakes.

The “Predator” series, dating back to the 1987 original, is always about an alien hunter showing up on Earth to kill some humans for sport. In the original movie, it took down a powerful group of commandos led by a soldier named Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger), before it was finally beaten. In “Predator 2,” an alien showed up in Los Angeles to take on gang members, before a detective played by Danny Glover took it down.

Black (who played one of the first characters killed in the original 1987 film), explained during the Comic-Con panel that this new movie expands on the story of the Predator. On the home planet of the aliens,

New Look at The Predator Leaves Comic-Con Buzzing with Excitement

20th Century Fox will be taking over the prestigious Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con shortly, and you can bet Shane Black's The Predator will feature prominently in their presentation. After several postponements (more on that later) one of 2018's most hotly-anticipated horror releases will finally hit Us Theaters on September 14th. In advance of what's certain to be an unprecedented promotional push, producers just released another look at one of the film's titular Yautja via Twitter while the big Comic-Con event was going on.

Already dubbed "The Fugitive Predator" this fine fellow is causing a minor stir among the franchise's most ardent supporters. Sporting sleek armor, a flattened face, and svelte features, some are hypothesizing this could be the series' first female Predator, or even perhaps a predator/human hybrid. The hybridization theory has already been floated in regards to "The Upgraded Predator", the 10-foot monstrosity featured in

New ‘The Predator’ Poster Is Full of Skulls

20th Century Fox has released a new The Predator poster, and it's pretty badass. Directed by The Nice Guys and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang helmer Shane Black, the film stars Jacob Tremblay as a kid who accidentally brings the Predators crawling back to Earth when he discovers a piece of their technology — and naturally, the intergalactic mercenaries bring a whole lot of violent chaos with them that falls in the lap of Boyd Holbrook‘s assassin. This comes on the heels of another decidedly bloody poster that was previously released, which featured the SuperPredator gripping the decapitated head of …

The Predator director Shane Black says the new Ultimate Predator is “savage”

Shane Black, director of The Predator, has described the film’s Ultimate Predator as “savage”.

There is no question that the predator is one of cinema’s most iconic movie monsters and one of the deadliest foes one could hope to meet. In Shane Black’s The Predator, however, the creature is getting a bit of a boost.

The film will see what is termed as the ‘Ultimate Predator’ and Black has discussed the creature’s abilities and appearance with Entertainment Weekly: “If the [ultimate] predator was to be an amalgam of, not just an ordinary predator, but also a collection of traits garnered from the various most powerful species that they’ve hunted, then you basically would have one that is stronger, faster, and smarter. We finally got an image that we liked, which captures this very canny, very cunning, and effortlessly powerful, savage predator. One of the only

Director Shane Black Took a ‘Butch-and-Sundance Approach’ to ‘The Predator’

Director Shane Black Took a ‘Butch-and-Sundance Approach’ to ‘The Predator’
The team behind “The Predator” wants to correct something about the latest installment in the three-decade-old science-fiction franchise. It’s not a reboot.

“It’s an attempt to do something — same world, same universe, just 30 years later,” explains Shane Black, the film’s director and writer.

The movie, which hits theaters on Sept. 14, follows a group of military veterans, some suffering from Ptsd, who must form a “Dirty Dozen”-like team to battle alien invaders. The first film, 1987’s “Predator,” also focused on a team of soldiers battling a fearsome adversary, but that unit was led by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura. This one is dominated by Keegan-Michael Key, Boyd Holbrook and Sterling K. Brown, all of whom are better known for their acting chops than for their bench pressing.

“It’s a leaner, meaner approach,” says Black. “Instead of the slick, ultracool super-soldier approach from the first film, these guy are a more broken,

Director Shane Black Offers Details on The Ultimate Predator's Abilities in The Predator

Shane Black's upcoming film The Predator will introduce fans to a whole new genetically enhanced Ultimate Predator. It's already been explained that the "universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species."

During a recent interview with EW, Black discussed the new Predator hunter and offered some additional details saying:

"If the [ultimate] predator was to be an amalgam of, not just an ordinary predator, but also a collection of traits garnered from the various most powerful species that they’ve hunted, then you basically would have one that is stronger, faster, and smarter.

Shane Black discusses The Predator reshoots and upgraded ‘Mega-Predator’

Back in February it was announced that Shane Black’s The Predator would be undergoing reshoots, which resulted in the film being pushed back – again – to its current September date.

Reports indicate that the reshoots have scaled back the number of Predators in the film, increased the links to both the original Predator and Predator 2, and reworked around “three-quarters of the third act”.

Speaking to Empire (via AvP Galaxy), Black has confirmed that the third act has been reworked, shifting the location of the finale shifting to a forest, and changing the time of day:

“The first time we shot the third act it was daytime. It’s all this spooky stuff but then it’s bright sunlight. It just didn’t work. So I said ‘Ummm, can we do this again at night?’”

Black also discussed the film’s genetically upgraded Mega-Predator, describing it as: “Bigger, meaner and nasty as hell.

Gory New Promo For The Predator Dials Up The Tension

The Predator is back in black. Or, rather, the galaxy’s most fearsome hunter is back because of Black.

Shane Black, that is, director of 20th Century Fox’s fourth installment in this most beloved of sci-fi franchises – sixth if we’re counting the Alien vs. Predator crossovers – which promises to be a gruesome, R-rated rebirth for cinema’s ugliest motherfucker.

Case in point: Fox’s gory new promo for The Predator, which finds Special Forces commando Quinn McKenna (Logan‘s Boyd Holbrook) staring up at what appears to be some human remains, dangling upside-down in the middle of a jungle. Alien: Covenant star James Franco was originally offered the role of McKenna, but ultimately passed. Fox’s attention then turned to Benicio del Toro of Avengers: Infinity War, though he too was forced to bow out dues to issues with scheduling.

But their loss is Holbrook’s gain, and
