PREDATOR / ACTION JACKSON
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Dammaged Goods
Discussion following with actor Carl Weathers.
PREDATOR
1987, 20th Century Fox, 107 min, USA, Dir: John McTiernan

ALIEN meets RAMBO when an elite military squad heads into the jungle, only to be confronted by an unstoppable extraterrestrial killer. Director John McTiernan shows signs of the expert action technique he would later refine in DIE HARD, while Arnold Schwarzenegger provides rooting interest as the tough-as-nails hero. With special effects from the great Stan Winston.


ACTION JACKSON
1988, Warner Bros., 96 min, USA, Dir: Craig R. Baxley

As Detroit police sergeant Jericho “Action” Jackson, Carl Weathers delivers a knockout punch to crime that’s worthy of Apollo Creed. When labor leaders fall victim to mysterious assassins, Jackson follows the trail to a powerful businessman (a very menacing Craig T. Nelson), whose influence had previously gotten the detective demoted. Sharon Stone and singer Vanity costar.


Screening formats: DCP (PREDATOR) and 35mm (ACTION JACKSON)
