The Predator mistake picture

Trivia: When Rory is walking down the street wearing the Predator mask, there is a bright red/orange alien walking toward him. This is a nod to the original Predator costume that looked like a big bug, the red/orange color was used to film the stealth camouflage scenes. The bug suit was scrapped after a few test shots proved how silly it looked. Jean-Claude Van Damme was in the original costume, but he was let go when the costume was scrapped. (00:45:20)

Trivia: Spoilers. Originally, Shane Black wanted Arnold Schwarzenegger to make a cameo in the end - he would have been the "Predator Killer" that rises from the device right before the credits. When he decided not to return, the "Predator Killer" was changed into a highly advanced suit of armor.

Trivia: The line on the poster "You'll never see him coming" was used by The Mandarin from Iron Man 3, also directed by Shane Black.

Plot hole: As the evolved Predator's ship takes off it leaves Casey Bracket alone in hilly forest terrain. The ship then flies a long distance before crashing and the Predator and McKenna start fighting, just for Bracket to show up and help out of nowhere. Impossible for her to cover that distance that fast in hilly forest terrain.
