Monster Hunter movie theatrical release moved up

The theatrical release date for the Monster Hunter movie has been moved up slightly.

Paul W. S. Anderson's Monster Hunter movie was slated to release on December 30, but it has been moved up to December 25. The film was originally set to arrive in April 2021.

Sony Pictures announced the new release date and confirmed the film will be available on IMAX screens as well as standard theater screens.

Here's the synopsis for the film in case you forgot what it's about:

“Behind our world, there is another — a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life.

“In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, terrifying attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man (Tony Jaa) who has found a way to fight back.”

Anderson, who is directing the film, is already working on a sequel, and according to his wife, and starring actress Milla Jovovich, Anderson is writing it up at the moment.
