Following the recent teaser release, Sony Pictures has released the first full trailer for the Hollywood live-action version of Monster Hunter.

In the images released so far, we could only guess that Milla Jovovich's "Artemis" is a modern-day soldier who apparently transitions to an alternate world overrun with giant monsters, and Tony Jaa seems to be a local hunter, but the trailer shows a straightforward plot of transferring to another world with current weapons and the massive appearance of dragons such as (Black) Diablos, Aptonoth, Rathalos, and Gore Magala, who are even more massive than the main Monster Hunter game.

The film is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who has close ties to Capcom for the Resident Evil series and is also the husband of lead actress Milla Jovovich. This is a husband and wife movie for Mila and Paul, following Resident Evil.

The image above is one of the official posters. The movie version of the monsters are as big as the Elder Dragon in the main game, and it seems like it's even more "you can't do that..." than the game, but still, Tony Jaa can handle it with a bow and arrow, or a punch and kick.

A relatively small, herbivorous species that looks like Apceros. At once, it is a monster hunter-like picture.

Diablos is now as big as the Elder Dragon. The hunter, played by Tony Jaa, also says "Diablos!"

Judging from the color, it would be Black Diablos?

From the trailer, you might think that a modern army unit is transferred to the world of monster hunters, they get beaten up in a series of face-to-face encounters, they are rescued by local hunters, and Artemis, who has run out of modern weapons, swears revenge and turns into an ogre with her twin swords, but this is just an edit of the trailer.

While all the last boss-level monsters appear one after another, the one that makes a brief appearance is an eyeless dragon that seems to be Gore Magala. This one, for example, could be the last boss that turns other monsters into rabid zombies and disrupts the harmony of the world.

Monster Hunter is scheduled to be released in the US on December 30.
