Monster Hunter Movie has gotten its first teaser, and it shows Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich taking on another popular Capcom franchise — only this time she’ll be facing giant dragon like creatures that make her facing the living dead look like a walk in the park.
Based on the best-selling multiplayer game franchise, the live-action film will be directed by Jovovich’s real life director husband Paul W.S. Anderson and will also co-star Tony Jaa. Here’s the overview from the official Monster Hunter Movie website:
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 Captain 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.
