“I don’t care what those creatures are — we’ll destroy them and close the gateway.” Yeah, Milla Jovovich doesn’t play around. And that’s good because it certainly isn’t playtime when enormous prehistoric critters go on the attack.
Here is the first full trailer for Monster Hunter, the video game adaptation from writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson, who directed his wife Jovovich in the Resident Evil films. Have a look at the footage above and the key art below.
The details: 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 (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.
“So what — we’re like guardians of the galaxy now?”
Josh Helman and Jin Au-Yeung co-star in the PG-13 film produced by Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Dennis Berardi, Robert Kulzer and Martin Moszkowicz. The fantasy action thriller is slated to hit theaters December 30 via Screen Gems.
