Predator fans can watch Prey online on Hulu — even if they arrive with mixed expectations. While the trailer looks great, recent Predator sequels have left fans underwhelmed to put it nicely. So, we're happy to see that Prey looks to deliver a simple approach to its storytelling, giving us a glimpse at a Predator attack on Earth that took place 300 years ago. 

Prey release date and time

Prey is live now, having dropped today (Friday, August 5) at 12 a.m. ET on Hulu (opens in new tab).

Naru (Amber Midthunder) is a young Comanche warrior, who is concerned and on the hunt after seeing a very ominous set of clouds that looked electric. After one encounter with a bear, she's given more reason to be concerned, as that bear is levitated into the air. 

What follows is a story where a single Predator looks to take on Naru's tribe. And, as you might have guessed, that Predator isn't at much of disadvantage when it comes to the numbers. 

Such is the power of advanced weapons. So, while Naru thinks that she is the hunter and her unnamed enemy is her prey? It looks like the roles may be reversed. 

Here's what you need to know about watching Prey online. Check out the trailer below and see the Prey reviews (opens in new tab), which are extremely positive.
