– GamesRadar + (@GamesRadar) November 12, 2020 “Definitely we’d love to do another one. Hopefully people will love it because I know Paul would love to do a sequel. I mean he’s already writing something .. . ”
Whether this news warrants excitement or concern is largely unknown at this time as the audience has not yet seen the first Monster Hunter, however Paul WS Anderson surely knows a thing or two about adapting video games for the big screen. The filmmaker directed the first Mortal Kombat in 1995 and was behind six films in Resident Evil. Depending on how you feel about it, we’ll say that divisive adjustments will undoubtedly determine whether or not you get excited about Monster Hunter 2.
But don’t make a mistake Monster hunter is a real passion project for Anderson, who has been working on the film for a very long time. “I’ve been working on Monster Hunter for 11 years,” he revealed. Since the trailer was released, some fans have had doubts about his take on the material, but the director assured that the titular beasts will impress moviegoers and video game lovers alike.
Anderson claims the creatures are “built in more detail than anything else in Jurassic World,” and is also pretty confident that this won’t be the last time we step into the world of Monster Hunter. “There are hundreds of monsters [in the game]. I can only use five or six of these in the film, “he added.” So it’s a big, fun world that I think we’ve just started scratching the surface of. “
The official synopsis for Monster Hunter reads: “Behind our world there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters who rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm captures Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and their unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) transported to one in a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that in this hostile and unfamiliar environment live huge and terrifying monsters that are immune to their firepower.
In their desperate struggle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique abilities 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). Faced with danger so great it threatens to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique skills to band together for the ultimate showdown. “
Written and directed by Paul WS Anderson, Monster Hunter stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Tipp “TI” Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung and Ron Perlman.
Monster Hunter is loosely based on the popular Capcom video game franchise and is set to release on December 4th 2020 in the UK and December 30th 2020 in the US. On our trip, Monster Hunter should deliver the right amount of B-movies to a desolate, monster-ravaged world. This comes to us from Games Radar.
