The story begins when Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook), a knowledgeable sniper and military officer, encounters a Predator spaceship that crash-lands on Earth throughout a mission. A Predator attacks McKenna's team, but he handles to paralyze the animal and take a few of its equipment. Concerned for his safety and his family's, McKenna sends the alien equipment to his house in the United States prior to being nabbed by government agent Will Traeger (Sterling K. Brown).
McKenna's son, Rory (Jacob Tremblay), a young autistic sage, obstructs the plan including the alien equipment. His sophisticated understanding of systems and patterns lets him activate the Predator gear, unintentionally summoning another, bigger, and more advanced Predator to Earth.Establishment of the "Loonies"
While under Traeger's custody, McKenna is put on a bus with a group of ex-soldiers struggling with numerous mental conditions, humorously self-dubbed "The Loonies". When the initial, now-captive Predator leaves the government facility and goes on a rampage, McKenna and the Loonies manage to get away in the middle of the chaos. After filling them in on his alien encounter, the Loonies, led by McKenna, decide to take matters into their hands.Dr. Casey Bracket
On the other hand, evolutionary biologist Dr. Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) is hired by Traeger to analyze the captured Predator. Dr. Bracket finds that the animals are upgrading themselves with DNA from various species across the galaxy. After enduring the Predator's escape, she experiences the Loonies and joins their mission.Grand Finale
The Predator and his searching pets chase the Loonies, Dr. Bracket, and Rory, who are later signed up with by a more threatening, hulking hybrid Predator. This second alien, the 'Ultimate Predator,' is exposed to be after the first one, planning to recover the innovation it had actually stolen, which people had kept. A show-down begins in the woods, and the Loonies make a stand by utilizing all their skill and wit versus both extraterrestrial beings and government agents.
In the concluding scenes, a new innovation known as 'Predator Killer' is revealed in the very first Predator's ship. This innovation, hinted at being a potential weapon for humans versus Predators, sets the ground for future sequels.Total Review and Impact
