Game creators react to movie version of 'Monster Hunter'
In bringing Monster Hunter from game consoles to the big screen, writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson sat down multiple times with the game creators Ryozo Tsujimoto and Kaname Fujioka to dial in the look of the monsters.
Tsujimoto is the son of Capcom’s founder and current Chairman, Kenzo Tsujimoto. Fujioka, on the other hand, is known for his work on the Monster Hunter series of games, having worked on virtually every installment as a director or creative director.
Based on the global video game series phenomenon, Monster Hunter is written for the screen and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung, and Ron Perlman.
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.
Monster Hunter will be distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Connect with #MonsterHunterMovie and tag columbiapicph
