Predator 2
Predator 2 trivia picture

Trivia: Have a close look at the Predator's trophy collection on his spaceship. Taking pride of place is a skull from the creature in the Alien movies. (01:33:05)

Trivia: As of 2004, almost everything that is used by the Predator in this movie has been reported stolen.

Trivia: The plot of Predator 2 underwent a few changes in its earliest stages. The role of Gary Busey's character 'Keyes' was actually intended to be Dutch, Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from the first film. Arnold was very outspoken against the script of Predator 2, and felt that taking it into the city was a bad idea. He declined filling the role. Hence, Peter Keyes was created. Arnold was approached one more time, to be Keyes' assistant (a role played by Adam Baldwin), but his response was the same as the first time: no way.

Trivia: Only 2 faces were ever cast for the Predator creature. The face used for the creature in Predator 2 was new, but if you notice, the face used for the elder at the end of the movie was the same head sculpt from the first film, but with spikey protrusions and more distinguished features of age added onto the face. Both were played by Kevin Peter Hall.

Other mistake: In the slaughterhouse scene, after Harrigan has injured the Predator with his shotgun and Keyes reappears, the Predator throws its disc, and severs Keyes in half at the waist. We see his legs flop to the ground, and blood pour from above, but his upper half (torso, backpack and weaponry) mysteriously remain hovering out of sight. (According to the director, the MPAA made him cut the footage of the top half of his body hitting the ground because it was too gory, creating this odd error). (01:21:50)

Suggested correction: We don't actually know if the disc completely cuts Keyes in half (or just passes through him and leaves a gaping hole). You see the blood, but the movie is edited so that it cuts back to Harrigan looking on in horror for a split-second, then back to Keyes' body on the floor (mostly obscured by a cement pillar).

They blatantly show his legs hitting the ground without the top half! I can only assume you watched an edited-for-TV version or something. It's VERY clear in the movie that he was cut in half. (In actuality, the scene was the victim of the MPAA according to the director... they had to cut the bit where the top half of his body hit the ground because it was too gory... creating this odd movie mistake).

More quotes from Predator 2

Question: Right after the Jamaicans kill Ramon Vega and the predator slaughters all of them, Jerry Lambert says, "she (Ramon's girlfriend) never made it". What could she have died of? She was seen walking with Leona Cantrell and didn't seem wounded, and the predator would not have hurt her because she was unarmed. If she were wounded, she would have been checked out by paramedics right away. (00:31:20)

Chosen answer: Jerry means she never made it to the hospital. Keyes' goon squad intercepted the ambulance and snatched her to interrogate her about the Predator.
