In the mood for some new Monster Hunter footage? Well, even if you’re not, it’s here anyway. The Paul W.S. Anderson-directed action flick reunites the director with frequent leading lady (and wife) Milla Jovovich for all sorts of effects-heavy mayhem, all of it loosely based on the video game series of the same name. The pic is supposedly headed to theaters on Christmas Day.

Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like Milla Jovovich hunting some monsters. Monster Hunter, the latest effects-heavy team-up between Jovovich and husband Paul W.S. Anderson, will now open on Christmas Day. That puts it directly up against Wonder Woman 1984, but Wonder Woman 1984 is also debuting on HBO Max that same day, so Sony might figure this is their chance to corner big theatrical numbers for that day. Of course, all of that hinges on the idea of movie theaters actually being open.

Filming on Monster Hunter started — and ended — in 2018. In fact, writer and director Paul W.S. Anderson has been hoping to make a Monster Hunter movie since at least 2012. Anderson would assemble quite a cast, including Thai breakout action star Tony Jaa and Anderson’s frequent leading lady (and wife) Milla Jovovich, to headline the video game adaptation, which was hit by delays and reschedulings, mostly impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. After being pushed back from an initial April release, Sony has set Monster Hunter for a December theatrical release…for now. Watch the new Monster Hunter trailer below.

After decades of trying, Hollywood is still having a hard time producing good video game movies. Detective Pikachu is probably the best movie based on a video game, but beyond that, it’s pretty slim pickings out there. However, director James Cameron revealed that, during quarantine, he has taken solace in a surprising video game movie as one of his guilty pleasures: Resident Evil. The Avatar and Terminator filmmaker recently proclaimed his affinity for the video game adaptation from 2002, and we’re really not sure what to think. Read More »
While there have been some notable exceptions, 2019 hasn’t exactly been a great year at the movies. If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been slowly drowning in a sea of mediocre blockbusters, take solace in the fact that you can soon burst back above the surface and gulp down a breath of fresh air in the form of a new indie called Paradise Hills, a visually stunning fairy tale which marks the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Alice Waddington.

Next week will bring Shazam! into theaters (and apparently it’s pretty damn good), and the end of the month will unleash the highly anticipated box office monster Avengers: Endgame. But sandwiched in between there will be the R-rated reboot of the Dark Horse Comics title Hellboy, and a new clip from the movie features Milla Jovovich as the immortal sorceress Queen Nimue, offering the titular hero (David Harbour of Stranger Things under crazy amounts of make-up) the chance to fulfill his destiny as the beast of the apocalypse.
