Monster Hunter is an upcoming action-thriller fantasy movie based on Capcom’s action role-playing game of the same name. Paul W.S Anderson, famously known for Resident Evil series, has penned down and directed the movie. Paul had announced during that Cannes Film Festival in 2018 about the start of the making of the movie, with a fair budget of $60 million. Screen Gems, Impact Pictures, and Constantin Films have produced the film. However, Sony Pictures will take care of the distribution.
Monster Hunter is derived from the game of the same name. U.S military team falls into a parallel dimension full of gigantic and powerful monsters, with evil intentions. Captain Artemis partners with the Hunter, to face the monsters. Also, the story has a portion focused on another small team, who tries to safeguard the Earth by finding ways to block the entry of monsters to invade Earth.
Many changes and fluctuations have happened in plot recent past since the movie is announced. It is yet not sure about what story freezes finally. Though, it is based on the Caption game but doesn’t match entirely to aspects of the game. This difference may have surfaced due to real-time elements of cinematography.
