The Monster Hunter film has everything a Resident Evil fan wants

The Monster Hunter film has everything a Resident Evil fan wants That’s Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa filming the live-action Monster Hunter movie. If you’re wondering why Milla Jovovich looks like she just stepped out of a Resident Evil movie instead of being wrapped in monster scales, that’s because director Paul W.S. Anderson’s movie will take some liberties with the franchise’s story. In this take, a team of our Earth’s modern hardened combat vets get magically sucked into the Monster Hunter universe. Wacky shenanigans ensue. We just need Ryan Reynolds to voice the Palico and we’ll be all set.

Great, a reversal of Beastmaster 2 or the He-Man movie. So more like a Dungeon Siege: In the Name of the King: Two Worlds sort of thing?

Clearly this movie will be standing on the shoulders of giants.


Standing on the shoulder-pads of giants you mean. :D

I know nothing about this franchise, except that the Monster Hunter cosplay community has been making some incredible outfits. I feel like the live action people have their work cut out for them trying to match what the fan community has made.


Will Milla spend most of the movie stumbling around like an idiot and trying to figure out what all these un documented systems and controls do before finally quitting in frustration? Because that’s been my Monster Hunter experience.


Sushi chef kitty cats or no sale!

(I’ve never actually played Monster Hunter)


I’m looking forward to it, despite never having played the game.

Looks like the perfect popcorn movie.
