Predators

Trivia: The creature that hunts down the Doctor before being shot down by the Sniper girl is actually the original design of the Predator that was scrapped during Predator 1 due to issues with the costume and the jungle. The original Predator was supposed to be very slender with backwards knees and long arms, but because of the jungle setting, it was scrapped because the director was unable to make the costume work properly.

Trivia: The famous line from the original Predator "You're one ugly motherf**ker" is included in Predators, but most people have missed it unless they speak Russian. Nikolai says the line before blowing himself up.

Trivia: One of the predators has a jaw over the helmet, that jaw belongs to a xenomorph, from Alien.

Trivia: At one point, the actor who played Nikolai whacked himself in the face during a scene and started bleeding. He ignored it, and apparently the blood added to the effect of the scene.

Trivia: Topher Grace was the only cast member (apart from the Predators of course) who did at least some of his own stunts, such as the scene where the group falls down a waterfall.

Trivia: When the Yakuza guy faces with the Predator, takes his shirt off and cuts himself across the chest, it's almost exactly the same as in the original Predator movie when the Indian guy faces down the Predator, takes his shirt off and cuts himself across the chest. And on both occasions, they die, although Yakuza guy manages to kill the Predator too.

Trivia: Hanzo has only three lines of dialogue in the entire movie.

Revealing mistake: When Cuchillo is about to be shot by Isabelle, you can see the bullet-hole-effect go off too early, due to bad editing. It's exactly in between that scene, when both actors are from the side, and as the scene changes to where Isabelle is seen from the front. (00:34:25)

Question: Nikolai comes across the colorful plant, which Edwin identifies to be poisonous, and he even knows its scientific name. But if the plant is known for Edwin, then it must be native to Earth, since there is no reason to believe that the doctor has studied extraterrestrial flora. Why is this plant growing in there? Have the predators maybe prepared the planet to be more "interesting", by adding some toxic plants from another worlds in there?

Chosen answer: Indeed, it's an interesting question, and not one to which any answer is given. In the absence of any other information, your speculation that the predators have taken various plant species from other worlds to study and just make their hunting environment more interesting is as good an explanation as any other.
