We almost lost interest in the Monster Hunter film right from the get-go when actor Diego Boneta showed off his character in basically just SWAT gear. Thankfully, more images showing Tony Jaa wielding a great sword and looking like Monster Hunter: World‘s Field Team Leader and star Milla Jovovich wearing a signature Sling have given us new faith in the movie.
More details about the Paul W.S. Anderson adaptation have since emerged that put Boneta’s cop costume in a new light. Apparently, the Monster Hunter movie is taking a few pages out of 1993’s Super Mario Bros., as the plot will revolve around a group of law enforcement agents from our world getting transported to Monster Hunter’s world and looking for a way to make it back home.
