Milla Jovovich has plenty of experience fighting monsters under the supervision of director Paul W.S. Anderson, and by this point everyone probably knows if they dig that sort of thing or not. But while their iteration of the Resident Evil franchise has come to an end, the pair’s video game adaptation antics don’t stop. And nor do the creatures. In a new, quick Monster Hunter teaser. Jovovich battles a gigantic dragon-like creature bursting forth from the desert sands. It looks not unlike the Tremors sequels, if any of those had a decent budget.

The official synopsis of the movie, which differs significantly from the games as one might expect, 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.”
