Feast your eyes on these mind-blowingly cool posters for Monster Hunter
Although it has already opened in China (and been removed thanks to a racist joke), the upcoming monster movie ‘Monster Hunter‘ has, so far, managed to keep its various monsters under wraps. Well, no longer. Four posters for the film have dropped and each one showcases a different creature that will appear in the film. Grab your weapons and sneak a look below:
Now, although I thought the trailer looked pretty good, I do have my reservations. For one, it is based on a videogame, which we all know, somehow don’t manage to translate that successfully to the big screen, despite all the best efforts and special effects. And two, it has been written and directed by Paul W.S Anderson. I love the ‘Resident Evil‘ videogames and love playing them in the dark. The films, not so much. They are ok as disposable entertainment but not as an adaptation of sorts of the games themselves. Anderson brought the franchise to the screen and with extremely varying quality throughout six films. And then we have his adaptation of ‘Alien Vs Predator‘. I have never been that much of a fan of the mixing of the two franchises in comic books and such like but the film itself was abysmal. Who directed it? You guessed it.
The creatures that we see in the posters are cool looking, however. They do strike me as a cross between creatures from the ‘Godzilla‘ franchise and the remake of ‘Clash Of The Titans‘ but in a good way. Having said that though, I’m not sure about the creature that is Palico. He/She/It? looks like martial art trained Tiger and that isn’t exactly what I expected to see. But I’m willing to give the film a chance to impress me with its effects and monsters while hoping for a decent script and decent action. We could do with a good old fashioned monster movie to keep us entertained. Let’s just hope that ‘Monster Hunter‘ may just be it.
