Monster Hunter is currently one of the most popular franchise for Capcom and it is getting a Hollywood movie by the director of Resident Evil. The first look at the film in action has leaked online.
Monster Hunter movie will star Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Diego Boneta, and Ron Perlman. From the leaked trailer, we can see that they are going for a similar concept to the recently released Monster Hunter World.
During the Shanghai International Film Festival as discovered by Siliconera, the producers for the movie had a short teaser trailer that they premiered to the audience. Someone from the audience has shared snippets from this teaser trailer that is very brief and doesn’t reveal much. It does give us an overview and hint that the movie is targeting the same style as the newly released MH World.
While the movie tries to keep it grounded, it uses an alternate dimension as a story point to pit the humans against the various monsters.
The premise of the movie is that a group of military personnel gain access to a portal that transports them to an alternate dimension. This new dimension is full of violent beasts and predators which have to be stopped from reaching the newly discovered portal in order to save earth from an invasion of these monsters.
Paul W. S. Anderson is directing this video game adaption based on the popular Capcom franchise. Monster Hunter World has sold more than 12 million copies for Capcom and they are working on a brand new expansion for it which is out later this September.
