Between 1987 and 2018, the original Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger Spawning a direct sequel and two spin-offs, it featured the titular mandibular space hunter wrestling with the acid-blooded xenomorphs of the Alien franchise. Prey (Hulu) is its first prequel and brings the whole thing back to basics. There will be hunters and they will be hunted. Prey was directed by Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane). He also developed the story with producer and original Predator creator John Davis. 

Prey: Stream or skip.

Gist: Since childhood, Naru (Amber Midthunder) trained as a tracker and hunter alongside his older brother Tarve (Dakota Beavers). I have received These skills are the domain of her Comanche traditional men. Naru gathers firewood for her cooking and hones her medicinal skills with her mother (Michelle Turach). But she also sharpens her tomahawk and practices her bow. One day, Naru, who is impromptu chasing her dog Sally and a deer, witnesses a disturbance in the sky. “Sign,” she says to Tarbe. "Thunderbird. I've been practicing. It's time for my kuhtaamia." What Naru saw, of course, was not the Thunderbird, but a spacecraft that had left Earth's atmosphere.
