Monster Hunter: the first trailer lands

Share this Article:

The videogame series Monster Hunter heads to the movies later this year, with Milla Jovovich starring – and here’s the first trailer.

Director Paul W S Anderson is returning to the world of videogames (following his Resident Evil films) for his next movie, and the wraps are coming off Monster Hunter.

Based on the popular Capcom gaming series, Anderson directs Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa. He also penned the screenplay for the movie too.

We don’t have a firm UK release date for this one, although the target is reportedly December 4th. However, perhaps understandably, the official UK press release still says “coming soon at UK cinemas”. What we do have though is the first trailer for the movie and its official synopsis. So if it’s okay with you, we’ll crack on with those.

Trailer first…

And here’s that synopsis…

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.
