Going two-for-two this week following the trailer premiere for Jiu Jitsu is actor and martial arts star Tony Jaa, at long last getting in some monster-huntin’ screentime with actress Milla Jovovich who leads the way in Paul W.S. Anderson’s latest, Monster Hunter. Anderson’s already been on a major PR campaign in the last few weeks teasing bits of the film, including through this year’s virtual New York Comic-Con which wrapped a few days ago.
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 Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (T.I. 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.”
The film is expected open this December, provided the monstrous pandemic hasn’t eliminated the theatrical experience by this year’s end. Check out the trailer above and the poster below!
