I found the Predator to be a fantastic film and cannot figure out why it was so poorly received. That withstanding there was an ending in mind that was going to further the it into the Aliens franchise.
\nSFX artist Yuri Everson posted an image on Instagram that supposedly came from the BCIT Aerospace Centre showing actress Breanna Watkins playing a “Predator Killer Ripley,” with her face covered by a mechanical mask in what appears to be a sleep chamber of some sort.
We shot 3 different endings for #thepredator, all variations of a 'Predator Killer,’" writes Everson. "This unused ending was Predator Killer Ripley wearing the breather mask we created for the film. You can see her name tag there on her costume. Breanna Watkins played Ripley under the mask instead of Sigourney Weaver. The moving ‘fingers' and ‘tail' were deemed too facehugger-like on the day and were cut and removed by someone."
I personally would have rather seen Arnold Schwarzenegger return as Dutch.
