Normally, I ignore any movie teasers that are less than 30 seconds. Then I watched the new teaser for Monster Hunter starring Milla Jovovich, and immediately changed my mind. IGN has the exclusive look:
That’s an intense 16 seconds, isn’t it? Plus, we got a look at one of the monsters. That’s more than we get out of full trailers for some movies. Apparently, this was shown at Comic Con Russia 2020. I’ll admit, I was this many days old when I found out that event even existed. I’m just happy that we got to see it, and not just some blurry cell phone camera footage.
In the new synopsis: “Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity,” a preview of the new Monster Hunter movie read. “When an unexpected sandstorm transports Lt. 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.”
Like most movies, Sony Pictures has delayed the release of Monster Hunter thanks to COVID-19. It is currently scheduled to release in theaters December 30, 2020.
