Monster Hunter Film Hits Theatres in December

It’s here, it’s really happening, it wasn’t just a fever dream you had caused by pandemic-induced hallucinations. The Monster Hunter movie is still happening, and it’s arriving in just a few months “in theatres,” whatever that means for the current situation.

Originally, the film was slated to arrive on September 4th of this year, then April 23rd of 2021, and now it’s coming “this December.”

You can watch the incredibly brief trailer here:

The movie stars Resident Evil film veteran Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa, in what is sure to be a fascinating big-screen interpretation of the beloved game franchise.

Here’s the film write-up from IGN:

Check out the new Monster Hunter movie teaser trailer featuring Diablos. 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 Lt. 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.

Monster Hunter, directed by Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil’s Paul W.S. Anderson, is based on the global video game series phenomenon.


Well, okay then.
