Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming Monster Hunter movies gets two new teaser posters featuring stars Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa.
This fall, Director Paul W. S. Anderson is bringing the world a new fantasy action thriller set in the Monster Hunter universe. At this weekend’s PAX East festivities, the team shared two teaser posters via IGN. One features Milla Jovovich with a great sword, while the other has Tony Jaa holding a Great Hunter’s bow. Of course, you’d love to see some monster on the poster, but, for a teaser, this one isn’t bad. Check them both out below.

Monster Hunter tells the tale of a military team led by Captain Natalie Artemis (Jovovich) who falls through a portal into an alternate world inspired by the Monster Hunter games. Once there, they team up with The Hunter (Jaa) to fight against the monsters and keep them from invading Earth.
Both Anderson and Jovovich have a ton of experience making movies based on video game properties. The husband and wife duo met on the set of the first Resident Evil movie and have since worked together on six of those films. Anderson also directed both the original Mortal Kombat movie and 2006’s DOA: Dead or Alive. Jaa doesn’t have the video game movie background, but when it comes to action films, that dude can flat-out go. His performance in movies like Ong-Bak and Tom-Yum-Goong remain some of the best martial arts showpieces of the last decade. Joining those two on the cast is T.I. and Ron Perlman, among others.
