20th Century Fox has released The Predator Christmas Special, a short stop-motion video in the style of the 1960’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television Christmas special. The over two-minute video features Santa’s reindeer Blitzen & elf Sprinkles being attacked by the Fugitive Predator, before the rest of the heavily armed reindeer arrive and an all-out battle ensues. Eventually, Santa’s reindeer “Larry” kills the Fugitive Predator and the other Predators arrive to present Santa a basket of Easter eggs (including one Xenomorph) for taking out their quarry. In the end, a badly wounded Sprinkles shows up and kills the other Predators and the Xenomorph egg hatches.
The Predator was released to theaters nationwide in mid-September, but it’s already available on blu-ray & digital for just $19.99:
The film was directed by Shane Black, written by Black & Fred Dekker, and stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski.
