The Monster Hunter movie has been delayed from September 4 to April 23, 2021, according to Deadline. No official reason has been given by Sony, however it is most likely tied to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Monster Hunter is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and stars Milla Jovovich, both known for the Resident Evil film franchise, with the most recent film being Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in 2016. Monster Hunter follows Lt. Artemis (Jovovich) and her team as they are transported to a new world where they must battle giant monsters.
Monster Hunter is one of many films to be delayed recently, including Disney’s Mulan and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, however Monster Hunter was pushed out much further. In recent Monster Hunter news, Jovovich revealed that her character in the movie uses the same weapons that Jovovich uses when playing the game.
