Sony Pictures has today released the first trailer for Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, and Ron Perlman. Based on the successful video game franchise, the movie has yet to receive a release date, but at least that will give us time to dissect the action-packed trailer. As far as adaptions to the silver screen go, this looks like it could be the perfect popcorn movie, with tons of action and plenty of monsters. Fingers crossed for Palicos, though.
The official synopsis reads:
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 (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.
