Monster Hunter -- based on the video game (2020, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Jovovich, Jaa, Pearlman




Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.

In theaters on September 4, 2020.

Somehow that first poster still looks like a Resident Evil movie.

Ha. Sure. Some of the moments in Resident Evil movies were brilliant. A lot of it is so painfully stupid.

I have no idea what to expect from this. I don't know the game.

Only slightly know the games. Not really enough to be invested in what will make a good movie. The concept seems like it should lend itself to a movie, but video game movies are very hit or miss (more miss).

Love the Video Games but I'm expecting the absolute worst with this film adaptation.

Itís Paul W.S. Anderson. I think we all know exactly what to expect.

is it? Of course Milla in it. Just be like a new Resident Evil with bigger cgi dumb creations of his and Milla trying to save the world from them. Would only see streaming, for free. She’s got a pretty face, but can’t act for shit and only does these post apocalyptic type films. Talk about type cast. To go from Joan of Arc to super heroine in low budget pics based on video games that may make a small profit is quite the leap...

Wow! That looks like straight to crap. Milla Jovovich is in it so I assume another Paul W.S. Anderson film. Flop. I’ll stick to game. If and when I decide to try it out that is...

Not going to lie, that Diablos coming out of the sand was pretty awesome.

I love the Video Game series so I will probably give this a watch.

You did see the W.S. initials in the middle of his name, right?

I agree with everyone else in that the trailer just seems like another RE movie.

That looks painfully stupid, but the monsters don't look half bad.

I can't really disagree with a lot of the criticism levelled at Anderson's movies, but as far as his brand of sci-fi fanboy wanks go, he seems to put all of the money on screen and gives them a more expansive 'theatrical' feel than the material probably warrants, and in that sense I've always found things to enjoy in most of them even if the overall product leaves me rather indifferent. Can't see this one changing the pattern.
