Los Angeles, often abbreviated to L.A., is a large city in California on the West coast of the United States of America. It is the second most populous city in the United States (after New York City). Al Dillon was notably born in Los Angeles on February 15, 1948.[1]

Los Angeles was also used as a filming location for Predator 2, with much of the movie's exterior shooting taking place around the city.


In Predator 2, Los Angeles in 1997 is portrayed as ravaged by almost urban warfare levels of armed crime, with particularly fierce conflict taking place between the Colombian Scorpions and the Jamaican Voodoo Posse for control of the city's drug trade. During this time, the city was affected by an unusually intense heat wave and was visited by a Predator seeking to hunt humans, motivated by the Jungle Hunter's recordings made in Val Verde ten years previously.
