Monster Hunter is a new movie based on Capcom’s fantasy game series. This was a passion project. As stated by director Paul W.S Anderson “I am approaching it not just as a filmmaker but also as a kind of long-term player and fan of it.”
There are great expectations of the audience from the Resident Evil director. On Wednesday, the first full trailer of Monster Hunter was released. It is a story about a band of soldiers sent to a world full of other-worldly creatures and the warriors who hunt them. It is a world completely different from our world. The Screen Gems has described the storyline of the movie.
This movie stars Milla Jovovich as Captain Artemis, who, along with her military unit, is transported to a different world, which is quite dangerous and full of unknown terrors. The character of The Hunter is played by Tony Jaa. He is shown as a courageous and brave person. He teaches Artemis about how to survive in the world of Monster Hunter. The film also stars Ron Perlman as the Admiral. Meagan Good and Josh Helman also have roles in this film.
The budget of the film is around US$60 million. The production of the movie started in October 2018. Principal photography ended in December 2018. The company distributing the film in North American is Sony Pictures, and in Japan, this charge is given to TOHO.
The move is all set to open in the United States on December 30 tentatively. The previously expected date of opening the film in North America and Japan is on September 4. The companies then delayed the opening because of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The companies are planning to open the film on April 23, 2021, in North America.
