The Paul W.S. Anderson directed film adaptation of the hit game Monster Hunter was set to hit theaters on September 2nd, but as with most things this year, COVID-19 had other plans. While the film is complete, Sony has decided to not go the VOD/ theater hybrid release strategy that many films are currently utilizing. Instead, the film is currently set for an April 2021 release. Given the scope of the visuals for a film based on people fighting giant monsters, we get it. Whether or not this film is any good, it definitely is not going to be as enjoyable on a small screen.
While we don’t have a new trailer, or even any new pics for you today, we’ve at least got a new synopsis for the film. Check it out below:
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 Lt. 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.
