To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Twentieth Century Fox’s Predator, Park Circus has announced the return to cinemas of this Arnold Schwarzenegger classic: the man vs. alien ‘rumble in the jungle’.

Predator will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from November 9, 2017.

Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads an elite squad of US Army commandos to a remote region of the South American jungle, where they have been assigned to search for officials who have been kidnapped by guerrilla terrorists.

At first it seems like any other mission: Dutch and his team of seasoned combat veterans spot a guerrilla camp, destroy it, and discover that the men they were sent to rescue have been executed.

But when Dutch attempts to lead his unit out, something horrifying and inexplicable begins to happen. One by one the men are killed by a mysterious adversary – a Predator from another world.

Directed by John McTiernan, just a year before Die Hard made him Hollywood’s most sought-after director, Predator has frequently been called the quintessential action movie.

Empire has described the film as ‘a sci-fi and action classic’, and it featured in the Rolling Stone Ten Best Action Movies of All Time.

The re-release of Predator also serves as a tasty reminder of the thrills inherent in this franchise, ahead of Shane Black’s The Predator, which will be released by Twentieth Century Fox in 2018.
