There are a lot of epic tales that video games tell that could easily be turned into films.

Just look at the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, or Control.

Sometimes, though, it's a world that's fascinating, like in Monster Hunter. Sure, the story is kind of irrelevant in the games, but hey, who cares?

Monster Hunter Movie release date

Originally the Monster Hunter movie was due to come out September 4th 2020.

However, due to COVID-19, this was pushed back to April 23rd 2021. Since then, the date has changed yet again as the teaser trailer now states that the film will release in December, although this could still change given the uncertainty in the cinema industry at the moment.

Monster Hunter Movie cast

The Monster Hunter cast is coming together pretty nicely so far.

It looks like the main characters could well be portrayed by Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa. You'll know Jovovich from classic films like The Fifth Element and less classic films like the Resident Evil films.

Jaa, of course, is one of the most famous Muay Thai fighters in the world, and if you've not watched Ong-Bak then you need to go and sort that out.
