It stars Amber Midthunder in the lead role as Naru, a young woman desperate to become a warrior like the men of her tribe — instead of a healer.
What she lacks in strength, she makes up for with brains, determination and skill.
When one of the tribe’s hunters is attacked by a mountain lion, Naru’s brother Taabe (Dakota Beavers) allows her to join the search party, but only to help track the lion and provide medical treatment if necessary.
During their search they come across large unusual tracks and a rattlesnake that has been skinned.
Naru circles back with another tribe member Paaka (Corvin Mack) to find Taabe and together the trio set a trap for the mountain lion, but Paaka is killed.
While the Comanches are hunting the lion, however, they themselves are being stalked by a hunter of a different kind — a visiting Predator here for a bit of fun.
Prey has been described by critics as the best Predator installment since the first film.
Development began during production of The Predator (2018), when producer John Davis was approached by Dan Trachtenberg and screenwriter Patrick Aison, with the concept which they had been working on since 2016.
The other big star, although you don’t see his face, is Dane DiLiegro as the Predator, a member of the alien race called the Yautja.
He was chosen for the role because Trachtenberg wanted someone with a more ‘feline’ athletic body.
