Sony Pictures has released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming live-action Monster Hunter film based on Capcom’s action-RPG franchise of the same name.
The new trailer dives deeper into the film’s actual plot as a group of soldiers finds themselves trapped in an alternate universe filled with dangerous and menacing monsters.
We get to see some more scenes of Diablos and Rathalos, two of the more well-known creatures from the game series, as well as Milla Jovovich’s character using what appears to be a sort of dual blade weapon.
For those that aren’t caught up on the latest video game to screen adaptation, Paul W. S. Anderson (Resident Evil) acts as writer and director for this.
It has a star-studded cast including Jovovich, T.I. (rapper, Ant-Man and the Wasp), Meagan Good (Shazam!), Diego Boneta (Terminator: Dark Fate), Josh Helman (Mad Max: Fury Road), Jin Au-Yeung (rapper), Tony Jaa (Furious 7) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy).
Here’s how Sony Pictures describes the film:
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.
Monster Hunter will premiere in theaters on Dec 30, 2020.
