San Francisco, CA., and Los Angeles, CA., – May 27, 2010 – Leading downloadable games publisher, Chillingo, today announced a licensing agreement with Fox Digital Entertainment to publish the official iPhone, iPod touch and iPad game based on the highly anticipated sci-fi action film, PREDATORS, presented by Robert Rodriguez. Hit indie developer, Angry Mob Games, is developing the new title, which will be available in time for the film’s theatrical release on July 9, 2010. Angry Mob Games is best known for its best selling action game, ‘Guerrilla Bob’.”

“The PREDATORS franchise is among the world’s most popular sci-fi brands and Chillingo is delighted to bring its adrenaline-packed excitement to the Apple App Store,” explains Johnny Coghlan, Head of Publishing, Chillingo. “The film’s fast-paced, suspenseful action provides the perfect environment for thrilling gameplay design.”

“The new title will immerse fans into the captivating PREDATORS universe and allow them to experience the thrill of a Predator hunt like never before,” said Bogdan Iliesiu, CEO, Angry Mob Games.

“Chillingo’s expertise in publishing innovative, high-quality games for the App Store makes them the ideal partner to bring PREDATORS to fans worldwide,” said Andrew Stalbow, SVP, Fox Digital Entertainment. “We have enjoyed working with Chillingo on past projects, including the incredibly successful iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad game for ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS, and are excited to broaden our relationship with the development of PREDATORS.”

Robert Rodriguez presents a bold new chapter in the Predator universe, PREDATORS, shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and directed by Nimrod Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators

The game’s thrilling teaser trailer is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ixdHFGROFo
