In the movie Predator (1987), Arnold Schwarzenegger is the toughest man on the planet, but in the South American jungle he faces the ultimate warrior.
"Predator is a 1987 American science fiction action film directed by John McTiernan, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Jesse Ventura, and Kevin Peter Hall. It was distributed by 20th Century Fox.
"The story follows an elite special forces team, led by 'Dutch' (Arnold Schwarzenegger), on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory in Central America. Unbeknownst to the group, they are being hunted by a technologically advanced form of extraterrestrial life, the Predator." - Wikipedia
Storyboard artist Paul Powers had an impressive task. He said, "The challenge was to scare Arnold Schwarzenegger."
Did he succeed? You decide.
I'd love to put a comparison video or image from the film, but I can't find any. If you know of any hit me up in the comments.
Paul Powers has a bunch more storyboards at http://www.paulpower.com/ including a great sequence from another Arnold film The Sixth Day.
Do you think Powers scared Arnold?
