Monster Hunter First-Look Photo Reveals Games-Accurate, Bigass Sword

Set to be directed by infamous low-budget filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson, Sony’s Monster Hunter has dropped its first official photo.

The picture features stars Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) and Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak, Furious 7) sprinting through the desert in their gloriously goofy hunting gear. Jovovich, who plays Artemis, looks almost like Alice from one of the later Resident Evil films, while Jaa, playing The Hunter, fits his character's name perfectly. He looks like an all-out monster hunter, complete with fur, a large bow and a comically massive sword that appears to be made of bone.

On top of the first look photo, IGN revealed the film’s first plot synopsis: "Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla 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, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back."

Monster Hunter is currently in production. Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, it stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, Meagan Good and T. I.
