Just this morning, Paul W. S. Anderson‘s next video game adaptation film “Monster Hunter” released their full-length trailer. Based on the CAPCOM title first released in 2004 for PS2, this take stars Milla Jovovoich as Captain Artemis, and has some big-ass weapons for you purists.
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower.
In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.
You can watch the trailer here.
There was also a very short featurette released over the weekend, comparing some of the more memorable monsters from the game franchise to their feature film counterparts. Looks pretty promising, honestly!
Sony and Screen Gems still would very much like to release “Monster Hunter” on December 30th, 2020.
