“I wanted to make an old-fashioned popcorn movie.” – John Mctiernan
Routinely recognized as a classic of its genre, John McTiernan’s seminal 80s film Predator seems to gain more adoration with each passing year. Recognizing its legion of devoted fans, a special edition release of the film was put out in 2002 along with an impressive slew of bonus features and video featurettes detailing how the film came together. All of these short films—along with a half-hour documentary called If It Bleeds We Can Kill It—have been strung together in this hour-long video, offering an especially absorbing dose of behind-the-scenes material.
