After some teasing, we finally got our first official trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's live-action Monster Hunter movie. Instead of following the games, though, the central plot sees soldiers transported to a mysterious new world dominated by these magnificent creatures. Together with the help with a hunter played by Tony Jaa, Milla Jovovich's Artemis and her team must figure out a way to close the portal and prevent monsters from leaking into the world - some of the monsters include Black Diablos, Rathalos, and Gore Magala. While the plot leaves a lot to be desired, the movie is sticking to the original designs of the monsters, which is great.

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 Captain 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.
Based on the global video game series phenomenon Monster Hunter, the film is written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat).
