Capcom's big screen adaptation of Monster Hunter, starring Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich, has unveiled its huge first trailer.
The movie was originally pushed back from September to April 2021, before being brought forward to December 4 in the UK and December 30 in the US. Hopefully that date sticks, but we'll wait and see.
Milla Jovovich stars as Captain Artemis who, along with her elite unit, are transported to a world filled with dangerous and powerful monsters during an unexpected sandstorm, and they find their guns are not up to the task.
Fortunately, they come across the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa) who teaches them how to stay one step ahead of the monsters and introduces them to his team, led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman).
Faced with a great danger that could destroy their world, the warriors combine their unique abilities for the ultimate showdown against the huge monsters.
The movie also stars TI Harris, Meagan Good and Diego Boneta, and is written and directed by Jovovich's filmmaker husband Paul WS Anderson.
It's not Anderson's first video game adaptation either as he worked with Jovovich on the Resident Evil movies, while he has also directed the likes of 1995's Mortal Kombat, Alien vs Predator and Event Horizon.
He's promised that this take on Monster Hunter is one of the most accurate video game movies of all time.
"We took all the notes [from Capcom] because we wanted it to be for fans of the game, for us to put these creatures on screen as accurately as possible," he said during the movie's recent New York Comic-Con panel.
Monster Hunter is set to arrive in UK cinemas on December 4 and US cinemas on December 30.
