A movie based on the Monster Hunter series is coming and it is starring Milla Jovovich, with Paul W.S. Anderson directing. Originally, the premiere was supposed to happen on September 4, 2020, but we still have this thing called Covid-19 going on. The movie is now supposed to come out in the US on April 23, 2021. They (of course) want to maximise the number of people going to see the movie, and during a pandemic, that is not possible in many parts of the world.

Sony Pictures has released a new updated synopsis for the plot. The movie takes place in another world entirely.

"Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown."
