Cool!

Two things about it, I don't like:

1. The boxy buildings to the left, since predators have a very curved architecture otherwise.

2. The idea they'd live in big high-tech cities, since they seem a more tribal kind of species that I think would be better placed in more jungle type surroundings.

But that's really nitpicking, all in all I really do love the colouring and atmosphere, I think it matches what we've seen of the species very well.

I think I would have preferred a jungle planet. Apparently, there is forests and canyons in the background.

Cool, thanks Darkness.
Yes, I'd prefer a rather hot planet, with jungle and quite high temperatures, but as to Predators living in tribes in the Jungle... I think that living that way they would have a hard time inventing and working with their advanced technology.

Ah, yes well, I didn't mean little tents and huts but the way I envisioned it is probably a bit more along the lines of the overgrown temples in South America, except as a living city. More like, advanced building complexes but still with a very strong presence of nature and jungle in its midst.

The clip of that planet does seem to have the right climate, but it also looks more like a high tech super-city, something which in my opinion feels more suited for a movie like Transformers or Star Wars than how I envision the Predator homeworld.

It's of course only my personal opinion that they should have such an apparent close relationship with nature and I'm not sure where I've gotten it. Maybe the fact they seem to wear a lot of natural materials and things like the big rock and flower ceiling in their spaceship in Predator 2. But there is of course nothing at all to suggest that their cities wouldn't be vastly different. It's not as if human hunters are always so strikingly similar to how our city people live either.

Haha thanks, he is a cool and cute Bubo owl guy, isn't he?

Yes I know what you mean, I didn't picture your words as tents and bonfires in the jungle. I just find it pretty hard to work with technology in an environment that is not modern but rather natural. I have no problems imagining that Predators would love nature and would try to preserve jungle and natural environment outside their cities, but the cities themselves should have pretty modern look I think.

Looks like buildings or Predator technology.

Holy hell I'm starting to really look forward to this movie.

Besides my earlier complaining about the square block houses, they really seem to have gotten some pretty neat stuff in there about predator culture, it seems to be done in a very suiting atmosphere. Very alien, otherworldly feel to it.

Except for concerning good old embryo-puking Chet, I have at least my hopes partway back up again. It seems almost certain that it's surpassed the first AvP at least, although I guess that wasn't too hard.
