«Thirty years later, it is still a Predator, but in that time he improved. It’s not a remake and not a reimagining of the old story. This is the franchise that you liked, but thirty years later. It is the consequences of what happened. That’s what happened all those thirty years. They are even more worse – they have evolved»,– quotes the words of the film’s producer John Davis, the press service of the film company «Twentieth century Fox».

The film was shot in Canada, in Vancouver and its surrounding areas mostly at night, because the night is associated with fear, and the Director wanted to combine in his film fiction Thriller with the Thriller.
