This article covers all the known deleted scenes from the 2010 film Predators. Most of these sequences were filmed before being cut during the editing process. Despite their removal, several of these scenes were included in the movie's comic book adaptation.

Note that scenes and sequences from the unused script by Robert Rodriguez are not included here, as this was essentially an entirely different story unrelated to the film that was made. Only scenes mentioned in the various drafts of Predators' shooting script are listed.


A majority of the deleted scenes from Predators are simply small character beats that would have served to expand on the character of Cuchillo in the early part of the movie. Otherwise, relatively little deleted footage is known to exist.

Several of the film's deleted scenes have been officially released on home video; in such instances, the release(s) on which they can be found have been noted in this article. Where applicable, the names of deleted scenes below have been taken from these DVD/Blu-ray releases.

Deleted Scenes[]

Dead man's parachute[]

Predators deleted 01

The parachute opens.

A short extension after the unnamed soldier falls to his death between Royce and Cuchillo shows the dead man's parachute suddenly activate, scaring Cuchillo.


Cuchillo and Isabelle[]

Predators deleted 02

Cuchillo mocks Isabelle.

Another brief extension was cut after Isabelle explains she is in the IDF. Cuchillo taunts her, saying, "I thought bitches weren't allowed to be snipers?" She responds with, "Is that why they didn't take you?" He laughs and remarks, "Bitch." This exchange is featured in the comic adaptation of the movie.


If you insist[]

When the group finds Edwin hanging in the tree shouting to be helped down, an alternate shot showed Royce saying, "If you insist," before shooting the branch.[1] Behind the scenes footage of this being filmed can be seen in the documentary Evolution of the Species: Predators Reborn.

Team "orientated" group[]

Predators deleted 03

The team debates what to do.

After Royce decides the survivors need to head to high ground, Isabelle, Cuchillo and Stans continue to argue about working as a team. Stans initially refuses to go with the others, but when everyone else walks away without him, he eventually follows.


Third most wanted[]

Predators deleted 04

Stans the serial killer.

A brief conversation helps to explain why Stans was brought to the Game Preserve Planet — he is a notorious serial killer, third on the FBI's most wanted list, and admits to having murdered 38 people. Cuchillo is disgusted, stating that, as bad as he is, he at least kills for money, whereas Stans simply kills for no reason. Edwin asks Stans why he committed so many murders, and he explains, "Well, my lawyer, he said I was crazy. But you wanna know the real reason, doc? Why the fuck not?"


Cuchillo unleashes[]

Predators deleted 05

"I unleash."

Before Isabelle tests her leaf compass, Cuchillo, Edwin and Nikolai discuss whether it is safe to drink the water in the rock pools. Edwin then says that he "needs to pee". Cuchillo responds, "woman pee, men piss." Edwin asks what Cuchillo does. Deadpan, he responds, "I unleash."


Why are you here?[]

Predators deleted 06

Royce confronts Edwin.

After establishing Edwin does not fit in with the group, he moves off to go to the toilet. Royce secretly follows him and grabs him, holding his combat knife to his throat, threatening him, "Go ahead and shout for the Russian, see what happens." Royce then obliquely accuses him of being involved in their being brought to the planet, based on the fact he is not a killer like the others. Edwin denies this, finally claiming that he is addicted to hallucinogenic drugs, and that while performing an appendectomy on a woman named Alice, he hallucinated that she woke up and began attacking him, and as a result he brutally stabbed her to death before the other doctors could restrain him.


They're smarter than that[]

Predators deleted 07

Nikolai sets up a Claymore.

When the group reach the drilling rig, Nikolai begins to setting up a Claymore to cover the entrance. Noland casually informs him that he's wasting his time because the Predators are too smart to fall for such a trap.


Stans and Isabelle naked[]

Predators deleted 08

Stans 'wooing' Isabelle.

After showing off his tattoo, Stans attempts to woo Isabelle, explaining that it has been a long time since he last had sex and that he fears the Predators will kill him before he has another chance. Surprisingly she agrees, prompting a shocked Stans to ask, "Really?" She smiles and responds with a definitive, "No."


Many more Predators[]

Predators deleted lasers

Royce is severely outnumbered.

Rather infamously, the film's trailers featured a shot where Royce is targeted by as many as fifteen Predator laser sights. In the finished film, the same shot features only Berserker targeting Royce, aiming at his forehead. Producer Robert Rodriguez later clarified that the alternate version of the shot, with multiple lasers, was created purely for the trailer and was never intended to appear in the movie.[2]

They're still coming[]

Predators deleted 09

"They're still coming."

After Tracker identifies the fleeing heroes' footprints, a brief additional scene showed the group climbing out of the river, at which point Royce looks back and proclaims, "They're still coming."
