Predator Prequel Movie Prey Has Been Made With A Lot Of Historically Accurate Detail

Amber Midthunder, the star of Prey, discusses director Dan Trachtenberg's dedication to portraying Native American life in the 18th century truthfully.

Prey, which follows Predator (1987), Predator 2 (1990), Predators (2010), and The Predator, is the fifth installment in the Predator franchise (excluding the two Alien vs. Predator crossover movies) (2018). The prequel movie, which takes place 300 years in the past, "tells the story of a young Comanche woman, a ferocious and highly trained warrior, who follows and eventually meets a highly developed extraterrestrial predator with a scientifically advanced arsenal."


Critics have already demonstrated how popular Prey is. The movie has a Certified Fresh score of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the best-reviewed Predator movie ever—not just the greatest Predator movie since the original. Prey is a Predator sequel done well, according to the majority of the reviewers, since it is a rare action thriller that raises the stakes without sacrificing character development.

Prey's production team went to considerable lengths to portray the Comanche Nation as it was in the year 1717, despite the project being a sci-fi action movie rather than a realistic period drama. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Midthunder cited the way the character Naru washes her teeth as a prime illustration of this.


"Dan once asked, "Did people [then] wash their teeth?" Like, how did that function?" Midthunder remembered It turns out that Comanche Nation member and Prey producer Jhane Myers not only gave the film's crew a ton of resources but also knew how to create a period-appropriate toothbrush. In the movie, Naru is shown using the mentioned toothbrush.

With great action, an amazing director, a perfectly done story, and great characters, Prey is a perfect movie for anyone to go out there and catch. Not only for those who are fans of the franchise but for each and every singular person. Prey is a perfect example of a movie that was done with great passion and respect for the franchise in its entirety.
