‘Monster Hunter’ Gets a New Release Date, a New Clip, and an Apology From Director Paul W.S. Anderson
Posted on Tuesday, December 8th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista
Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Monster Hunter has gotten a lot of attention in the last few days – and not the good kind. The action film opened in China last weekend and ended up being pulled from theaters due to backlash over a racist joke. Now, Anderson and co-star Jin Au-Yeung – who says the joke in the film – have issued an apology. Meanwhile, plans for the movie’s domestic release have changed – instead of opening in theaters on Christmas Day as previously announced, Monster Hunter will now arrive earlier, on December 18. And just in case you’re not sick of Monster Hunter at this point, there’s a new clip, too.
