IGN Premiere is rolling out a full week of Monster Hunter movie content, including the exclusive trailer debut. Check back Thursday to learn what we found out on the set of the video game movie and then read our exclusive interview with director Paul W.S. Anderson on Friday.
The monsters have arrived. Watch our exclusive domestic trailer debut for Monster Hunter, the upcoming film adaptation of the Capcom video game franchise, in the player below.
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, this Screen Gems release stars Milla Jovovich as Captain Artemis who, along with her elite military unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta), Josh Helman, and Jin Au-Yeung), finds herself transported from our world to a dangerous otherworldly realm full of unknown terrors.
There, Artemis and her team run afoul of such frightening beasts as high-flying Rathalos and sand-dwelling Diablos, while also crossing paths with The Hunter (Tony Jaa), a fearsome fighter who helps teach Artemis how to survive in the world of Monster Hunter.
Feast your eyes on the exclusive domestic trailer for Monster Hunter below:
In addition to Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa, Monster Hunter also stars Ron Perlman as the Admiral, a character who debuted in the game Monster Hunter: World.
The Admiral’s one-time partner, Meowscular Chef, is one of the less threatening creatures to appear in the Monster Hunter movie. Unfortunately, neither character appears in this first domestic trailer.
Beyond Rathalos and Diablos, the trailer also includes our first look at a virtual bestiary of Monster Hunter creatures such as Apceros and Nerscylla.
Sony’s Screen Gems also released the latest poster for Monster Hunter today, which features Jovovich wielding the Dual Blades. You can check it out in the gallery below:
