The Predator franchise reboot Prey looks set to save the sci-fi horror series by changing its setting, something that Terminator 7 could pull off for the similarly tired Terminator series.

The Predator franchise’s approach has not been working for some time. While the first two movies in the series were effective, grisly sci-fi horror movies, both Alien Vs Predator movies failed with critics

Fortunately, Hulu’s Prey looks set to save the franchise by offering an original spin on the overly familiar premise.

Another sci-fi horror series that began with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead, the Terminator franchise, has fallen victim to a similar rut in the last few decades.

Taking a genuine risk like Prey’s decision to pull its story all the way back to 1719 would allow the Terminator series to break this repetitive cycle and offer a new angle for the series.

I Call Bull: Copying an as yet unproven formula would surely seem like a cop out rather than pulling together some strong writers and creating an original script that plays alongside the canon we already have?

Doesn't sound too inspiring but I guess I would watch it given the franchise.

That premise would get ripped to shreds straight away by most fans, I understand where the writer is going with this but The Terminator has been so done to death it almost needs a reboot in a decades time rather than more of the same
