Hollywood’s various takes on popular video game franchises have been a mixed bag, to say the least. That won’t ever stop Paul W. S. Anderson from pumping them out, and it’s been a lucrative venture thus far. The director/producer behind the Resident Evil live-action film franchise will launch the Monster Hunter movie this December, and Milla Jovovich is once again in the starring role. This time, she’s leading a group of soldiers who are transported into an alternate dimension full of monsters. You can check out the latest trailer below.

About the Monster Hunter movie
The latest trailer came with the following synopsis for the upcoming adaptation:
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.
The Monster Hunter movie is set to hit theaters on December 30.
