Illustration for article titled The First Predators Footage Invades SXSW

Get ready to see the ultimate space warriors head into a brand new battle. Robert Rodriguez's Predators is debuting its first look at the Austin, TX South By Southwest film festival.


Producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal are holding a short screening of some their new Predators in action. Plus, both of them will be around for a Q&A following the debut.

Here's the official synopsis from the press release:

A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez's creative auspices at the filmmaker's Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet… as prey.

With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.


The presentation will be held at the Alamo Ritz Theater in Austin at 10:15 PM, March 12. You must have a SXSW badge to attend, and it's first come, first served.
