What do Monster Hunter game creators Tsujimoto Ryozo and Fujioka Kaname think about the upcoming movie version from writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson?

Fans of the popular video game franchise of Capcom don’t have to wonder anymore, because the Monster Hunter game creators have shared their reaction in a YouTube video.

Game creators react to ‘Monster Hunter’

In bringing Monster Hunter from game consoles to the big screen, Anderson sat down multiple times with Tsujimoto and Fujioka to dial in the look of the monsters.

In the video, Anderson showed a comparison of the movie version of the monsters with how they originally looked in the game.

The creators shared their excitement upon seeing how Anderson remained faithful to the monsters’ original look, if not making them even more menacing.

“If we can deliver for you, we can deliver for the fans,” a pleased Anderson said after hearing their reaction.

The first “Monster Hunter” trailer shows that resident badass Milla Jovovich is definitely ready to hunt giant monsters.

Based on Capcom’s global video game series phenomenon, the “Monster Hunter” action-adventure fantasy film is written for the screen and directed by Anderson.

Anderson also directed the “Resident Evil” film series that starred his spouse Jovovich and was also based on a popular video game franchise of Capcom. Apart from Jovovich, the film stars Tony Jaa, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung, and Ron Perlman.

Capcom’s Monster Hunter action role-playing game franchise started with the release of Monster Hunter for PlayStation 2 in 2004. It has since become Capcom’s second bestselling video game franchise, just behind Resident Evil. Capcom has released Monster Hunter titles on different platforms, including PC, home consoles, handheld consoles, and mobile devices.

Get ready to watch “Monster Hunter” in Philippine cinemas in 2021.

Columbia Pictures, the local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International, will distribute “Monster Hunter” in the Philippines. Connect with #MonsterHunterMovie on social media and tag @columbiapicph.
