Fox has released some exciting new looks at the Robert Rodriguez-produced Predators, which hits theaters this Friday, July 9th.

Robert Rodriguez presents a bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators, shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, directed by Nimrod Antal. The film stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) 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 Brody, Predators stars award-winning actor and filmmaker Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix trilogy), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3), Alice Braga (I Am Legend) and Walton Goggins (“The Shield”). Also taking on key roles are Rodriguez stalwart Danny Trejo, who recently completed a starring role in Rodriguez’s upcoming Machete, plus UFC champion Oleg Taktarov (National Treasure), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and Louis Ozawa Changchien (Fair Game).
