This looks like an awesome movie and it's coming out at the end of the year! I saw other smaller trailers for it, but this one added to that. It seems to explain why a modern group of military soldiers are fighting monsters we see in the Monster Hunter games. It didn't make sense, before this trailer, why modern weapons were being used, but now it makes sense. You do get to see some people using weapons that we're used to seeing in Monster Hunter games. One of the main characters, for instance, is using dual blades. She's one of these modern soldiers, but it seems she switches from modern weapons to Monster Hunter weapons. There are other characters we will see wielding other Monster Hunter weapons. I've read a little bit about this movie and how the production team worked with Capcom. This has been in the works for about a decade, I think.

So let me know what you think of this and if you're planning on going to see it (despite the COVID situation). I feel like this looks like something I most definitely want to go see as I've enjoyed playing Monster Hunter: World. For those of you that own a Switch, you should also be aware that the Switch is getting two new Monster Hunter games (lucky!).

"Only in theaters in December."


That aside, the movie looks like a lot of campy monster killing fun. Milla looks like she's giving it everything, which is cool to see. I know she elevated the Resident Evil films so it's cool to see her make a run at Monster Hunter.

I felt like I was watching a transformers trailer.

@Jon I thought she did great in the Resident Evil movies and that's how I know her best. That first RE movie was a favorite of mine, and a lot of that had to do with the awesome soundtrack. Now I've seen that they're making a RE reboot. Honestly, I don't care, zombies really aren't my "thing." I don't really like them, they're everywhere in too much of everything IMHO. Yet I own many of the RE games on the GameCube.

LOL @Will_Ball is that bad or good? I liked the Transformers movies I saw, but I missed at least one of them, particularly Bumblebee. I like the dinosaur ones I didn't really know about as a kid. I didn't follow Transformers too much. I think I was more into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man, and X-Men.

Oh! I had a neat theory, what if the people were transported to the Monster Hunter world by Kirin, since he's the elder dragon associated w/ thunder and thunder is how they're transported to the world. maybe he brings them to that world to fight another elder dragon or just to be general monster hunters, perhaps the monsters are taking over and need culling. I think it should really piss off some characters and make them break stuff, cuz damn I hated fighting Kirin at first! I broke a controller or two fighting it. Yeah, I love MH:W but it is a game that has really pissed me off. LOL I haven't played in a while though, although this trailer really makes me want to play it more. I haven't finished the Iceborne content. After watching this trailer, I felt pretty excited and am looking forward to seeing the movie. Ron Perlman is playing the Admiral, BTW.

@GregoPeck, depends if you like the Transformers movies. 😄

@Will_Ball well I think I saw two or three and I think I liked them. I think have the first on Blu-Ray, if so it was probably one of the first Blu-Ray discs I bought. I haven't seen it in forever though. I don't know if I've watched any of them in the last decade or five years.

I highly doubt that December theater release. We'll see. If Tenet flopped I can't imagine they'd do well with a theater release when it's likely to be worse.

But yeah I kinda wish studios weren't afraid of fantasy settings. Like hmm, how can we get people to watch this? BIG ASS MACHINE GUNS YEAAHH

Release date: 12/30/20 (via Google search)

It seems I missed it. The Internet told me yesterday that the movie was actually released ahead of time on 12/18/20. The Blu-Ray is expected to be released in March, so I'm going to have to wait. I found at least one source that contained some things worth noting. I saw that it was released much earlier in China. Apparently the reviews aren't great, kind of mixed. I (briefly) read criticism of underdeveloped characters. Also, China found some dialogue that they found offensive and halted it's circulation. Although I also read that the CG was good. I still intend to watch it when I can.

I don't know if it's still going on, but Monster Hunter: World had an event going on w/ the movie, in which you play two quests as the main female character in the movie. She uses dual blades by default and I never tried that weapon type, so I was surprised that I was actually able to complete the event quests.

Once you get it, I’d love to read your review!

Cool! Well, maybe I'll have to write something about it. smile Thanks for the encouragement!
