Film Maker Gives Predator a Minecraft Makeover

With a few new textures and some new animation, Minecraft becomes the perfect home for an invisible, murderous alien.

A Lithuanian Minecraft enthusiast, known only as SS Lithuania, has fused the game’s digital building blocks with the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, Predator. It’s an inspired combination, not to mention a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

The video opens with the predator surveying the jungle. With a few button presses on his wrist computer, he shifts to a different vision mode, and spies a lone lumberjack, working away on a tree. A few more button presses and he’s invisible and ready to begin the hunt. Naturally, the lumberjack doesn’t stand a chance. The predator races across the jungle canopy, and ambushes the man in his subterranean wood shop. The predator takes the lumberjack’s head, and adds his skull to his collection.

The movies seems to be a combination of texture packs, for elements like the skulls, and CGI, for things like the decapitation animations. It’s remarkably well done and is surprisingly cinematic, thanks to the cuts from first-person to third-person shots. Hopefully, SS will continue to work his or her way through the classic Arnie movies, because a Minecraft Terminator would be a lot of fun to watch.
