When the Predator franchise was rebooted in 2010 with Nimród Antal's Predators it generally received a relatively balanced shrug from the collective audience. It was certainly better than some of the sequels that had been churned out since the classic original, but it was also kind of hard to get too excited about.

However, Antal's version of Predators, which was produced by Robert Rodriguez, wasn't the only potential pitch for the title. In fact, several filmmakers were invited to pitch their own ideas, using the logline, "Predators hunt humans on their planet..." as the source of inspiration. You can watch the trailer for Antal's imagining below:

One such filmmaker tasked with developing a pitch for Predators was director and screenwriter Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice). It's not clear what the actual story of his version would entail, but he did release some concept art showing a more slender imagining of the Predator and some action moments.

What do you think? Does Natali's version look better than the one we eventually got?
