Check out some Monster Hunter movie pics from the set courtesy of the stars themselves

Movies based on video games are… well, they’re movies. The chance they end up in sometimes top 10 listicle of the worst transmedia synergies ever is pretty high. The Warcraft movie pretty much bombed critically, after all, recovering its costs only thanks to China. Thanks, I guess, China?

Anyway, let’s hope the same doesn’t happen with the upcoming live-actionย Monster Hunter movie, which is currently filming. As Kotaku noticed, stars Milla Jovovich and Meagan Good have been pumping out pics from the set over on Instagram. Apparently, some fans were “a little worried” following the first pic, according to Jovovich, but the specific military gear in use supposedly does make sense in-world.

Oh yeah, since you’re gamers and probably don’t use Instagram? A word of advice: Don’t read the comments. Instagram is even more poorly moderated than the social media you’re probably used to, so some of the top comments on these stunning pics are sexist and gross.

The whole roundup is over on Kotaku.

Amazing pictures. love to watch them. Can’t wait to watch the movie. Does the teaser for this movie is released? One can watch all movies and shows for free on CotoMovies app.

*scratches head* Um…so…it’s Sci-Fi now, huh? Yeah, I’ll pass.

Yep, exactly what I was expecting. Hollywood is by far too scared to leave Earth or Earth-like behind. Unless it is sci-fi, and then they still don’t go very far afield most of the time.

This is… something that trends due to the relative popularity of crossover fantasy (and always gets backlash due to the fact that too much crossover leaves nothing else) elsewhere in the creative arts.

I mean, itโ€™ll probably be terrible. But in that fun, Milla Jovavich way all her movies are. I bet itโ€™ll be a riot.

Yea, I have a feeling this will be another shit movie only worth watching as a part of Netflix sub (or other streaming service)… Simply because of the kind of director this movie has and not because of the kind of military gear I can see in these photos – you CAN actually make pretty good “monster hunting”-themed movie even in modern setting with the right director, here is a great example:

Turn on subtitles if you can’t understand the language ;-)

Honestly all I had to see was Milla Jovovich is in this. I’ll go see it. I love her.

Eh, sometimes I enjoy a good junk-food movies once in a while. At least Anderson and co are good at that.

Alright. Let’s get this out of the way. You know how we gamers have been waiting for a movie to do a game justice? So that, finally, a great game isn’t made to look like crap by a movie based on that game!

Well, Monster Hunter, The Movie is *pause for cheezy dramatic effect* not it. Heh. No, it will not answer our prayers. The movie will be crap in a can. BUT it doesn’t mean it won’t be fun. I mean what the hell, Mila is the queen of these films and it is because she has fun making them.

I, to be honest, do satisfy a guilty pleasure when I turn off my intelligence and just sit back and enjoy the carnage. It’s kind of like Bungie explaining and defending Destiny. Activision is the drone undead in this scenario.

So, this movie will suck, but I look forward to watching it via a streaming service.

Wait so this is a Monster Hunter movie but they’ve got modern day army folks?

Why do I feel like this is going to be a generic-ish Kaiju/Godzilla movie.
