It looked like that's what they were going for in the trailers, I liked the original predator as ridiculous as it was because of the tension during the final fight between the Predator and Arnold, I don't think any of them have come close to matching that feeling since and this one doesn't look like they were even trying for that kind of movie.
I really wish I would have never saw that film. I'm not an ultra hardcore SW fan, but it ruined the enjoyment I had for the series. It made a mockery of the old characters. It feels like a sick, twisted joke.
Well, on a recent earnings call, the CEO of Disney Bob Iger assured investors that Disney plans on keeping Deadpool rated R and that R-rated movies will be a part of their plans moving forward.
“We’re going to continue in that business,” Iger said according to Variety. Adding that “There’s certainly popularity” for movies like that. Iger explained that to differentiate between R-rated movies and more family-friendly fare the company will be “carefully branding [R-rated films]…so we’re not in any way confusing the consumer.” Meaning, they are unlikely to say “Disney” at the beginning of them. Which makes sense—for instance, Disney owns ESPN but there’s no castle in front of Monday Night Football. ESPN is its own brand and Fox may continue to be its own brand as well. At least for R-rated movies.
