Bad-ass new Predators trailer: rumble in the jungle

IGN has posted the first trailer for producer Robert Rodriguez's upcoming Predators movie, which you can view below.

Unlike the earlier behind-the-scenes footage, this teaser takes us deep into the story of the movie, which centers on a group of dangerous humans transported to another planet to be hunted by the title creatures.

And it is BAD ASS. Rodriguez and his director, Nimrod Antal, have clearly gone back to the very first Arnold Schwarzenegger movie for their inspiration: a bunch of hard cases in a jungle battling an unseen, savage predator, with nothing but their wits and a bunch of big weapons. No silly co-eds, no scientists, no big mythology, no Aliens.

Among the hard cases: Rodriguez regular Danny Trejo, The Shield's Walton Goggins, Laurence Fishburne and Russian UFC champion Oleg Taktarov, along with Alice Braga, Adrien Brody and Topher Grace. (Topher Grace?)

We are completely sold on this movie and can't wait for it to come out on July 7.
