If you’re a fan of the Monster Hunter series, then you’ve probably heard of an upcoming live-action movie based on it. It looks like a teaser for the film was leaked online. Or rather, a recording of it was, reportedly taken from the Shanghai International Film Festival
We know that Paul W. S. Anderson is directing, and the movie will star Milla Jovovich. These two names would be familiar to those who watched the Resident Evil series of films. Also in the film is Tony Jaa, and he appears to be playing quite a major role judging form his costume.
The film’s plot involves a soldier, Lt Artemis, whose military unit is transported to the world of Monster Hunter. And if the teaser suggests a specific setting from the Monster Hunter universe, it would be the New World, where the latest entry in the franchise, Monster Hunter: World, takes place.
While Jovovich plays Lt Artemis, Jaa appears to be playing the Research Commission Field Team Leader from Monster Hunter: World. Other characters from the latest game in the franchise also making an appearance include the Handler and the Admiral.
The Monster Hunter live-action film is slated to hit the big screens on 4 September 2020.
