The Predator franchise has fizzled in recent years, but like anything with even the slightest amount of name recognition, the next reboot is always right around the corner. Now, it seems that the corner the next Predator film is hiding behind can be found at Comic-Con.

The image (seen above) shows San Diego from the point of view of the Yuata’s (Predator’s) thermal vision, alongside a quote from the original film: “There’s something out there waiting for us, and it ain’t no man… We’re all gonna die.” Followed by a new hashtag.
Fox recently teased a major surprise for their upcoming panel at Comic-Con. Could a new Predator film be what the studio has in store? We’ll have to wait until the actual event to find out. Fox’s panel is on Saturday from 4:15pm to 5:45pm PT, but until then you can track the Predator via Twitter (#HuntThePredator) or just smear yourself in mud and start skulking around San Diego.
