Fans won’t be watching the Monster Hunter movie until next year. Just a few days ago, Sony pushed back the film from its September 4 premiere date, due to the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency that is preventing theaters from opening. It also seems that the upcoming movie’s story will differ from the video games. Sony has finally dropped a brand new synopsis for Paul W.S. Anderson’s film, and it will be a simple sandstorm that sets the events in motion. Additionally, it appears that the movie features two separate worlds. In the games, the story develops in some unspecified location where humans are merely native settlers.
The new synopsis of Monster Hunter reads:
“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 (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.”
Monster Hunter will now arrive on April 23, 2021.
