'The Predator' (Aug. 3)

Back when Predator was released in 1987, Shane Black was a wunderkind screenwriter whose first produced script, for a buddy action-comedy called Lethal Weapon, had just before released three months earlier. (He was also cast as monster fodder in the original.) But the most in-demand writer of the 1980s has since become a reliably sharp director (see Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and the fourth film in the series puts Black in charge of the humans v. killer alien action. He's also loaded the cast with highly regarded discoveries like Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Jacob Tremblay (Room), and Sterling K. Brown (American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson). Remember, if it bleeds, you can kill it. ST
