Coming as no surprise in 2020, The Wrap has reported director Paul W.S. Anderson’s latest horror feature Monster Hunter has been pushed back seven months from September 4 of this year to Aprl 23, 2021.

Loosely adapted from the video game series of the same title, Monster Hunter follows a United Nations military team lead by Captain Natalie Artemis (Milla Jovovich), that transports through a portal to an alternate dimension where humans, called “Hunters,” fight mythical creatures. The two groups must work together to stop the terrible monsters from entering and invading Earth.

Like in the six-film Resident Evil series, that are also video game adaptations, Anderson is known for using a multitude of practical mixed with computer generated effects that have contributed to the worldwide success of his movies that also include 1995’s Mortal Kombat and 2004’s Alien vs. Predator.

Principal photography on Monster Hunter began on October 5, 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa and Jovovich announced on her Instagram that filming was completed on December 19 of the same year.

Jovovich will star alongside Tony Jaa (The Protector, Furious 7), Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. (Ant-Man and The Wasp), Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy), Diego Boneta and Meagan Good.

So, before going fishing next April, be sure to check out Monster Hunter!

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
