Attention, 'Predator' fans: he's back in town with a few days to kill, with Fox annoucing an early-June Blu-ray release for the franchise's first sequel.

Starring Danny Glover (subbing for an absent Arnold Schwarzenegger) and a whole new batch of predators who are even more pissed off and in the big city, 'Predator 2' will hit Blu-ray on June 9.

This follows Fox's previous Blu-ray releases of the original 'Predator,' as well as the two 'Alien vs. Predator' spin-off films.

Tech specs for 'Predator 2' will see a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (1.85:1) and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio.

There's no word yet on supplements, but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
