Prey: How The Predator Prequel Tried To “Reclaim” An Iconic Shot From A Classic Western Movie

Prey director Dan Trachtenberg explains how the Predator prequel reclaimed a famous shot from a Western classic. Released in 2022 on Hulu, the latest entry in the long-running Predator franchise put an entirely new spin on its familiar sci-fi subject-matter, setting itself in pre-Colonial America for a story about a young Comanche warrior woman battling a hunter from beyond the stars.
