5 Time Periods Where Predator Could Go Next

5 Time Periods Where Predator Could Go Next

With the recent release and massive success of Prey, it’s brought to the fore the discussion with Predator fans of exactly where we want the next installment to go, and what time period we’d like to see it set in. The new film has shown the character can work in an unusual, technologically sparse era, so here are five-time periods where Predator could go next…

5. Feudal Japan

Predator
Samurai vs Predator – for a whole film, please.

As with any time period hopping piece of media, feudal Japan and its samurai inhabitants are always high on the list – see the fans of Assassin’s Creed with this regard. The thought of a single, or even multiple Predators hunting a group of samurai protecting a town, or even better, a group of Ronin with no honor protecting a town in their last good deed, just sounds like a Predator film that can write itself.

4. World War Two

World War Two Would Be a Brutal Backdrop for the next Predator Flick

The most modern take on this list of time periods where Predator could go next, it’d be interesting to see exactly how the group dynamic between German and Allied forces would work when faced with a more dangerous, chaotic, and alien enemy entering the mix. Enemy of my enemy is my friend and all that. The muddy battlefields and trenches would allow the franchise its now regular muddy scene of one character or the other, as well.

3. Vikings

A Viking Warband

Two words. Viking Berserker. Watching some huge, muscular man covered in Viking warpaint, screaming bloody murder as he tries to go hand-to-hand with a Predator would be a cinematic, if short, spectacle. Throw in a Viking Warband charging towards one or two Predators for a showdown and you’d have an incredible fight scene.

2. Wild West

Wild West

I’m sure this is a surprising entry on the list of five time periods where Predator could go next, to me, the Wild West seems an obvious one. A developing town ruled by lawless individuals, criminals, rapists, and murderers in their own right, pitted against the ultimate hunter with its set of rules, ready to kill those in his way… yes, please.

1. Ancient Rome

Ancient Rome

Whilst it could be close in content to the Viking’s suggestion, throw in a few massive battle scenes between the Romans and an opposing army, where the Predator was picking off his targets from a straggling band of soldiers. Or perhaps the Romans find it and somehow trap it, taking it for a gladiatorial bout before it escapes and seeks bloody vengeance on its captors. There are plenty of ideas that ancient Rome could give to the Predator franchise.

There are my five entries on the list of five time periods where Predator could go next. What would you suggest? And do you think we’ll get another time period piece, almost making it an anthology series, or will we get a sequel to Prey as the end credits suggest?
