The Hulu movie Prey, the fifth installment (and prequel) in the “Predator” sci-fi/action movie franchise, topped all streamed movie content for the month of August, according to new data from JustWatch, which tracks more than 20 million users’ monthly streaming choices across 54 countries.

Prey’s earlier release helped it hold off the digital release of Paramount Pictures’ theatrical blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, in addition to A24’s longtime weekly chart topper, Everything, Everywhere All at Once.

The protracted release of the final episodes of the final season of AMC+ original series “Better Call Saul” topped all streamed series last month. The “Breaking Bad” spin-off, starring Bob Odenkirk, topped Netflix original DC Comics series, “The Sandman,” and the debut of HBO Max’s “House of the Dragon,” prequel to HBO’s popular “Game of Thrones” franchise.

Disney to Launch ‘Predator,’ ‘Romeo and Juliet’ Movie Spin-Offs on Hulu, Star+ Platforms in 2022

It’s been 34 years since the movie Predator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a commando leader battling an extraterrestrial warrior, hit the big screen.

Now, five sequels later, Disney is set to launch a prequel titled Prey, which will debut in 2022 on Hulu and the media giant’s Star+ streaming service, which specializes in general entertainment content (i.e. more mature) not carried on Disney+.

Prey, as well as the “Predator” franchise, were absorbed by Disney through its 2019 asset acquisition of 20th Century Fox Studios. Prey will be released by the renamed 20th Century Studios unit.

Other movies streaming on Hulu and Star+ next year include Rosaline, a spin-off character from the Romeo and Juliet story starring Kaitlyn Dever;  fairy tale actioner The Princess, and suspense thriller No Exit.

The movies were disclosed as part of Disney’s Disney+ Day (Nov. 12) content announcements.
