MONSTER HUNTER Behind-The-Scenes Video Showcases The Creation Of Two Massive Creatures

Monster Hunter director Paul W.S. Anderson sits down with the director of the Capcom video game series to show off the film adaptation's versions of Diablos and Rathalos, two massive creatures in the game.

Last week, a brief teaser for Monster Hunter gave us our first look at the film adaptation's version of Rathalos, one of the monsters featured in the video game series from Capcom. While the story of the film seems to vary greatly from that of the video game franchise that it's based on, director Paul W.S. Anderson wanted to ensure that the movie's depiction of the massive creatures was approved by those who had worked on the game series.

In a new behind-the-scenes video, Anderson is seen sitting down with Capcom game series' director Kaname Fujioka and producer Ryozo Tsujimoto to show off the film adaptation's versions of Diablos and Rathalos. According to the video, Anderson actually sat down with the game's creators multiple times to "dial in the look of the monsters."

The result, as we saw in the recent teaser and in this video, is a faithful recreation of two of the game's most iconic monsters. In fact, Fujioka and Tsujimoto even praised Anderson for being able to do something in the movie that they weren't able to do in the game development.

Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown. Monster Hunter, directed by Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil's Paul W.S. Anderson, is based on the global video game series phenomenon.

With Lt. Artemis being created specifically for the movie, which sees her and her squad transported to another world filled with these monsters, it's clear that Anderson has taken some creative liberties with his adaptation of Monster Hunter. But at least his recreation of the game's monsters is at least faithful to that of the game and it seems like Capcom is impressed with some of the visual stuff he has been able to pull off.

Monster Hunter was recently pushed back and will now hit theaters on December 30, 2020.
