New PREDATOR PREY movie will premiere in English and Comanche — GeekTyrant

Director Dan Trachtenbergis to come Predator film Prey that looks damn awesome! The only thing that disappointed me was that the Comanche warriors spoke perfect English. I kept hearing how committed the film crew was to providing an accurate portrayal of the Comanches and bringing a level of authenticity to the film.

Well, I have no more to complain about because I have just learned that the film will be released in English and in Comanche! There will be a version of the movie that you can see in Comanche, and it’s damn cool! The original cast returned to play their roles in Comanche.

The film was produced by Jhane Myers (god monsters), who is herself an acclaimed filmmaker and member of the Comanche Nation and “is known for her care and dedication to films surrounding the Comanche and Blackfeet Nations and her passion for honoring the heritage of Indigenous communities. As a result, the film features a cast made up almost entirely of Indigenous and First Nations talent.

In an interview with /Film, she shared this wonderful new information, saying:

“It’s really important to me to be Comanche and to work with our Comanche language department, as well as to work with Comanche language speakers. But just the fact that people will have a choice, the world will have a choice. listening to the whole movie in comanche is amazing.

“It was never done for my tribe, ever. There are only a few movies. I think ‘Star Wars,’ which was 30 years old when they transcribed it into Navajo, and then there was Navajo again for ‘Finding Nemo’, who was 20 when they did this. But this is the first time that a brand new movie has been released and has the ability to hear everything in the full language. So not only that inspires the young speakers of my nation, but inspires a lot of other people and shows them, and like I said, shows the world what our language is, which is exciting for me.

“It’s great because I have a great knowledge of our history, because I’ve worked with museums, I’ve also studied different aspects of our culture, but putting it all together is everything. simply amazing. Even some of our stories, some of our language stories, all of those nuances are something really new to this franchise.

This news makes me happy. We will hear the characters speak as they would have done 300 years ago.

The film follows a young woman named Naru, “a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She was raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters that roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people.The prey she stalks and ultimately confronts turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

The film’s cast includes Amber Middle of Thunder (The Ice Road, Roswell, New Mexico), newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp (Sooyii), Michelle Muguet (The return journey), and Julian black antelope (Tribal).

Prey will be released exclusively on Hulu on August 5, 2022.
