Several years ago, the development of a new Predator film began. Official details were hard to come by, but the film’s producers eventually confirmed the rumors, revealing that it took place in the 1700s. The film was eventually revealed to be titled Prey and its first trailer was released in early June.
As the film’s development went on, the decision was eventually made to make Prey a Hulu exclusive. Reviews were incredibly positive and the film currently holds a 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, it appears that the film has nabbed a record for Hulu.

Here is the synopsis for Prey:
Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, “Prey” is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people.
