Prey: Ending, Post-Credits Tease and Predator Easter Egg Explained


Predator prequel Prey — that is enjoyable to say out loud — got here to Hulu on Friday (and Disney Plus Star outdoors the US), bringing the enduring sci-fi collection again to 1719. It pits one of many alien hunters towards Comanche Nation tribespeople like Naru (Amber Midthunder), and it is completely wonderful.

“This is easily the best Predator movie we’ve had since the original, with a well-developed protagonist (and her excellent dog), a rich cultural basis and clever use of an iconic movie monster,” I wrote in my CNET review.

It builds to a memorable finale, hints at what occurred afterward in its stunning animated credit sequences and consists of an superior reference to 1990’s Predator 2. Let’s dive in — however be warned: This stuff will make you a SPOILER Tyrannosaurus, similar to me.

We can kill it

Having seen her fellow Comanche Nation warriors and the deeply disagreeable French poachers slaughtered by the Predator, Naru lures the beast right into a lure in the dead of night forest. She kills it utilizing a mixture of her data of the surroundings, the weapons she’s gathered (together with a well-known flintlock pistol with the engraving “Raphael Adolini 1715” — extra on that later) and the Predator’s personal tech.

Covered within the alien’s luminous inexperienced blood, she brings its decapitated head again to camp and is honored as a hunter by her tribe. It mirrors the sequence during which her brother Taabe (Dakota Beavers) did so with the lion earlier within the film, after she did not. In killing the Predator that took Taabe’s life, Naru has proved herself to be the tribe’s largest badass.

And all of them lived fortunately ever after. Except…

Predator revenge?

We get a supercool animated recap of the film’s occasions over the primary part of the credit, with one further wrinkle. The ultimate picture pans to point out a Predator ship popping out of storm clouds over Naru’s camp, implying that the aliens attacked once more. Which would not appear sporting of the Predators — you misplaced guys, go dwelling.

It’s unclear how these occasions performed out — maybe we’ll discover out in a sequel someday — or once they happened. It’s attainable that they left Naru in peace and the picture is a metaphor for later hunts involving people, because the authentic Predator and its sequels reveal that the aliens are kinda obsessive about battling us.

That may be wishful pondering although, because the flintlock pistol Naru received from murdered French poacher Raphael (Bennett Taylor) presents us a clue. It’s on her belt when she returns to camp, however followers will comprehend it exhibits up later within the collection.

Raphael Adolini 1715

In Predator 2, which takes place in 1997, LAPD Lt. Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) and the primary Predator — generally known as the City Hunter — battle on one of many aliens’ ships. After the human triumphs, a bunch of different Predators decloak and seem ready to murder him.

Instead, certainly one of them flings him a present — Raphael’s 282-year-old flintlock pistol.

“Take it,” the Predator growls to an astounded Harrigan.

At the very least, this proves that the Predators took again this gun in some unspecified time in the future within the intervening years. They might have killed Naru (because the credit picture suggests they attacked her once more), allied along with her (people are accepted by Predators within the Alien vs. Predator comics and the 2004 movie) or simply retrieved it after she died.

Prey apparently overwrites the occasions of the 1996 comedian Predator: 1718, during which one of many aliens groups up with a pirate captain to battle his mutinous crew. The film’s Raphael, the one one of many French poachers who would not act like a complete dirtbag, is presumably the one whose identify is engraved on the weapon.

The Alien vs. Predator comics had been initially revealed by Dark Horse, however the license transferred to Marvel within the wake of mum or dad firm Disney nabbing the Alien and Predator rights after its 2019 Fox acquisition. They aren’t presently obtainable to learn digitally, however Marvel would possibly rerelease them prefer it did with Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics.
