While John Squires is our resident physical media supporter, I’m all about digital ownership. Sure, at any time something I love could vanish from a service (I’d do just about anything for “Tales From the Crypt” to return to streaming services), but I love being able to browse my own personal catalog and custom organized lists, something Vudu allows me to do.
Yes, I have most of the films I love on DVD or Blu-ray, but I don’t mind “purchasing” them again on VOD platforms if the price is right (I just scored Adventures in Babysitting for only $5), which is why I’m all about this new sale.
Vudu, FandangoNow, and Apple currently have all four Predator films – John McTiernan’s Predator (1987), Stephen Hopkins’ Predator 2 (1990), Nimrod Antal’s Predators (2010), and Shane Black’s The Predator (2018) – available in a single bundle for only $24.99. That’s basically $6 a movie and they’re all in 4K UHD! Here’s the kicker, Predator 2 and The Predator are both $14.99 on their own, which makes this a must-grab deal.
In Predator: “Major Dutch Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is the leader of a military rescue unit looking for allies captured by guerrillas in the Latin American jungle. At first, it seems like any other mission: Schaefer and his team of seasoned combat veterans spot a guerilla camp, destroy it, and find the men they were sent to rescue executed. But when Schaefer attempts to lead his unit out, with a captured guerrilla in tow, something horrifying and inexplicable begins to happen: One by one the men are killed by a mysterious adversary – a Predator from another world.”
In Predator 2: “This electrifying action sequel unleashes the deadly invisible Predator in another jungle — the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey and Ruben Blades co-star in this action-packed, high-tech thriller.”
Robert Rodriguez presents Predators, “A bold new chapter in the Predator universe in which Adrien Brody stars as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors mysteriously brought together on a jungle planet.”
In The Predator: “From the outer reaches of space to the backwoods of southern Georgia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. And only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biology professor can prevent the end of the human race.”
