The South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival has announced Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and director NimrÃ³d Antal will present a first look at the upcoming Predators, at SXSW on March 12, 2010.
The 2010 event will take place March 12 â€“ March 20.
The special presentation of Predators will take place at the Alamo Ritz Theater in downtown Austin, at 10:15pm. Doors open at 9:45pm, and the special event is only open to SXSW Badge-holders on a first-come, first-served basis. An audience Q&A follows the unveiling.
Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez's creative auspices at the filmmaker's Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by NimrÃ³d Antal.
The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers â€“ mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members â€“ human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.
Twentieth Century Fox releases Predators in theaters everywhere July 9, 2010.
