Prey, the newest entry in the Predator movie franchise, will premiere exclusively on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland on August 5th under the Star banner.
The prequel movie is set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, and tells the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who 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 showdown between the two adversaries.
Prey is directed by Dan Trachtenberg (The Boys, 10 Cloverfield Lane), written by Patrick Aison, and produced by John Davis and Jhane Myers, with Lawrence Gordon, Marty Ewing, James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas and Marc Toberoff serving as executive producers.
The film features a cast comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation’s talent, including Amber Midthunder, newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush and Julian Black Antelope.
In the US, the movie will stream on Hulu.
