PREDATORS trailer needs some Schwarzenegger 

Well, this is quick. The first behind the scenes footage of Predators debuted at South by Southwest (SXSW) only days ago and now we have a full trailer. I just saw this trailer in front of Repo Men. Mark me down as interested. This may be the first good Predator movie since the original, which was also set in a jungle. The only item missing: Arnold Schwarzenegger. Are we really to believe that Adrien Brody and Topher Grace can match wits with Predators? They're too weak. Schwarzenegger was the best and strongest human specimen we could hope to send into battle. These guys should prove easy prey by comparison.
