Back in November we posted news about a throwback to late ’70s/early ’80s sci-fi/action films in development from Sandy Collora, the man responsible for one of the most well-known fan films of all time, Batman: Dead End. Titled Hunter Prey, it clearly draws influence from both Star Wars and Predator, along with Collora’s background in creature effects. A teaser trailer has just hit the web over at io9, and it looks like either a really low budget sci-fi flick or the most expensive fan film ever made, depending on your point of view.
The movie is about a group of “elite intergalactic commandos” who crash land on an unknown planet while transporting an alien prisoner. The prisoner escapes, and they must track him and bring him back alive. Okay, I’ll agree that the production design has a great old school look to it, but at the moment, the teaser trailer gives us very little else to go on. It’s just a bunch of people in Boba Fett armor walking around in sand with CG backgrounds. I’ll definitely give this a chance, but only because this is the same guy who did the poop monster for Kevin Smith’s Dogma. Apparently they’re hoping to show off Hunter Prey at Cannes, so it will be interesting to see if anyone picks it up for distribution. Check out the teaser trailer below and visit the film’s official website for more info.
