"Classic movie monster and dreadlock icon the Predator is getting an updated look courtesy of Shane Black, according to a new full-body image from Empire. Ditching the sleek, Schwarzenegger-stalking look from the 1980s original, Black's The Predator is outfitting its intergalactic big-game hunter in a bigger, dare I say more badass suit of armor to better do battle with the Super Predator teased in the trailer. "The challenge became to make it frightening," Black told Empire. "'Cause upon that hinged everything whether you bought our heroes going up against him and felt a real threat for them. We had to invent a scenario in which the Predators were mysterious and scary again."

There's a lot to take in with this new look. First and foremost, the Predator's shiny new helmet looks uncannily like the bucket Rick Moranis wore in Spaceballs as Dark Helmet, something I deeply apologize for pointing out to you…."
