Monster Hunter fantacy action movie
Monster Hunter is an upcoming fantasy action film produced, written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. This movie is based on the video game series of the same name by Capcom. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Tip “T. I.” Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung and Ron Perlman.
Monster Hunter is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 25, 2020. The film was originally scheduled to be released on September 4, 2020. But it delayed to April 23, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, before being moved up to December 30, then finally the Christmas date.
The first official trailer was released on October 14, 2020. A film adaptation based on the series has been in conception since 2012 by director Paul W. S. Anderson. A teaser for the film was first shown at the Shanghai International Film Festival in June 2019, along with the announcement that Toho and Tencent will oversee the film’s distribution in Japan and China, respectively.
Constantin Film is producing the film, having planned to start production in late 2017 or early 2018 but later confirmed during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival that production would begin in September 2018 in and around Cape Town and South Africa, with an estimated US$60 million budget. Special effects studio Mr. X VFX, which worked on the Resident Evil films, will also be involved in production.
