Monster Hunter | December 2020...for now | Sony/Screen Gems | based on the Capcom game | From Paul W. S. Anderson

Recommended Posts

BTW the budget on this is 40M according to Scott Mendelsen. Pretty impressive that Anderson was able to pull off such a movie on that budget in today's day and age. Sounds too low. Maybe it's 50-55M. Still would be great. Has potential in the overseas markets.

Idk I think this looks fun as hell. Anderson doesn't give me a ton of confidence, but the set-pieces look cool and this type of movie is right in his wheelhouse. And that is IMPRESSIVE if this is only a 40M budget (honestly would have expected 100M+ after watching that trailer). Effects and action look really good.

 

Hoping it gets a theatrical release (whenever that is). Definitely would be a much better experience than watching this on a laptop.

oh wow that's crazy! Monsters look superb so obviously SFX is not what eats up the budget or some 200m+ budget movies would have better SFX. Which they don't.

 

Yeah, this tons of looks fun. What are the chances that Jovovich has a Blood of the Dragon moment?

Trailer getting a lot of hate. Poor trailer views and a lot of dislikes. Looks like it will tank everywhere.

A couple of angry nerds on the internet doesn't mean much.

It's not just a couple of dislikes. It is A LOT. 60:40 ratio.

Considering how easily gamers get mad over the most stupid shit, and get things they hate closer to a 40:60 ratio, that's actually pretty good.

I hope the last scene of the trailer isn't the last scene of the movie, but I'm pretty sure it is...It screams cliffhanger moment!

THIS. This this this this. I remember when I worked as an usher I made the mistake of casually asking "how was it" as I was letting out Warcraft on opening night.

 

My god I could not get rid of those dudes for like half an hour as they tried to whine to me about Warcraft lore.

That guy seems like an asshole. The accident is the fault of the producers, who were rightfully sued, not Paul WS Anderson.

This is either going to get pushed or release direct to VOd/streaming because UK&European theatres will be shut till December/January.

I saw the trailer before Honest Thief. Looks hilariously cliched.

Lmao. Going up against WW84. Surprised Sony managed to get IMAX screens. I thought WW84 would get those as some scenes were shot using IMAX cameras.

Oh well. If all these films release in India in Decmeber, I might check them out.

It seems there's a joke about knees...A character asks about "what kind of kneees are these" and the other replies "Chi-Knees". The "Chi-Knees" were translated to Chinese and that's what happened.
