There have been numerous entries in the Preadator franchise since the first film was released back in 1987 – but upcoming film Prey is quite unlike any of those previous movies.


The film essentially serves as a prequel to the other films, following the very first instance of the Predator arriving on Earth as he terrorises a Native American tribe in 1719.

Read on for everything you need to know about Prey, including when and where you can watch it, cast details and a look at the trailer.

Prey release date

Somewhat surprisingly, Prey will not be playing in cinemas at all – instead going straight to streaming.

In the UK, it will be released as a Hulu original film on the Star hub on Disney Plus, arriving on the streamer on Friday 5th August 2022.

You can sign up to Disney Plus for £7.99 a month or £79.90 a year.

Prey plot

The film takes place in the Predator universe but crucially before any of the previous films in the franchise – with the action unfolding in 1719 as the iconic monster makes his first trip to Earth to hunt a Comanche tribe.

The official synopsis reads: "Naru, a skilled female warrior, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth."
