The movie will be released later this month.
The next Monster Hunter movie director, Paul WS Anderson, said the movie was inspired by Konami’s Metal Gear Solid franchise.
In a recent Capcom USA Twitch stream, the director said the decision to make the movie’s main character (played by Milla Jovovich) a member of the army was the PlayStation Portable title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker’s Hunting Quest Side Mission. .. In this release, the protagonist Snake must use the first creatures such as the PSP companion Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Ratalos and Tigrex.
“I was very much influenced by the crossover that Monster Hunter did with Metal Gear Solid,” Anderson explained.
“This is the perfect image for juxtaposing a man with a machine gun with a creature.”
The Monster Hunter movie began production in September 2018 and is estimated to cost about $ 60 million. I first saw this movie in February 2020, when there was a poster introducing the protagonist played by Jovovich and Tony Jaa. The trailer debuted in October.
Anderson is already working on a sequel to the Monster Hunter movie.
The film was originally scheduled to be released in April 2021, but was moved on December 25th.
This isn’t the first time Anderson has worked on Capcom’s IP. The director is probably best known for his adaptations of the Resident Evil series, which debuted in 2002 and lasted until 2016. A reboot of the Resident Evil movie series is in progress.
