I don’t know about you, but I have been looking forward to watching Monster Hunter. I’m a big fan of Milla Jovovich starring in action films. Judging from the first official Monster Hunter trailer, I think the upcoming movie will be a great time.
I understand that some people aren’t happy about Paul W. S. Anderson doing a live-action adaptation of the highly popular Monster Hunter game series. Considering all of the changes Anderson made in his Resident Evil film series, it makes sense for MH game fans to be cautious (and frustrated).
However, in my opinion, the Monster Hunter film shouldn’t mess with anyone’s enjoyment. I’m a huge Resident Evil fan and the live-action films didn’t ruin the entertainment value I still get from the R.E game series. For me, the R.E films are a separate entity from the game installments. And that’s how I’m looking at the upcoming Monster Hunter movie. It’s going to do its own thing.
From all of the promotional information that has been shared, the premise of the film involves Milla Jovovich’s Captain Natalie Artemis and her group being transported to a new world. Artemis will serve as a surrogate for the audience as she tries to adapt to her dangerous surroundings and learn about the different deadly creatures. She and her group will be aided by a skilled warrior (played by Tony Jaa).
I like how diverse the cast looks. The monster and weapons designs are quite impressive. Apparently, Anderson worked with people involved in the game series to ensure everything looked authentic.
Here’s the trailer!
As far as I can tell, the scene where Artemis runs towards the giant Wyvern possibly means the monster was able to come through the portal behind her.
Along with Jaa and Jovovich, the cast also includes Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr., Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung, and Ron Perlman.
The Monster Hunter film is currently scheduled to be released in the United States this December.
Let’s see if the release date changes.
