Sony Pictures has postponed the Milla Jovovich starrer film Monster Hunter to April 23, 2021. Based on the video game by Capcom, the film was supposed to hit the theaters during Labor Day weekend date of Sept. 4.
Some forecast reports are indicating that covid cases are likely to increase, especially in cities like L.A. and mayor Eric Garcetti indicated that he’s about to lock down the city again. So its clear that if cities would go under lockdown, thetaers will be closed as well. We might see other films which have planned release next month, deciding to move their releases to a future date.
Monster Hunter is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson with Resident Evil star Jovovich taking the lead role as Lt. Artemis and Tony Jaa as the Hunter. In an interview Anderson revealed that he & Milla created the protagonist Artemis for the film and is not based on a character from the game.
“I wrote the role of Artemis for Milla as the avatar for the player, so she could be a grounded, relatable real-world character who is fresh to the world of Monster Hunter,” Said Anderson.
Later Jovovich also confirmed this in another inerview, “Yeah, she’s not based on a character from the game. Paul wrote her as the captain of a team of Army Rangers that go in to rescue their colleagues.”
Monster Hunter follows Lt. Artemis and her loyal soldiers, when they are transported to a new world, they engage in a desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers. Feature film based on the video game by Capcom.
