The Monster Hunter (8 min.):

The film is full of characters from the game, such as the Admiral, the Manager or the Palicos; but even without knowing anything about the game, there are close characters who introduce you to this new world, says the director. In this way, the team members thought that in order to attract all types of audiences, not just fans of the franchise, a part of the film had to be developed in our world, to make it accessible to all.

They continue with the presentation of the members of the Artemis team, the main character played by Milla Jovovich. For the film, they had military advisers who helped bring life and credibility to their characters. Along with this, the actress and the director explain how they dedicated a lot of time and effort so that Captain Artemis was real and close.

They also talk about the Hunter, played by Tony Jaa, whom Milla Jovovich considers “a real superhero” because he does all his action scenes without stuntmen or cables. In turn, they explain that the Admiral, played by Ron Perlman, commands a huge ship sailing through the sand dunes.

For Gamers and Geeks (7 mins.):

For Paul WS Anderson, what he loves most about Monster Hunter video games is that what is written on the box is exactly what the game is. If you like monsters and hunting it, this story is for you. The filmmaker has declared himself a fan of the saga for more than a decade, so he negotiated the rights with Capcom.

For her part, costume designer Danielle Knox explains that they were advised by an expert in the game to be faithful to the environment and costumes of the Monster Hunter universe. In addition, the producers comment that the production designer, Edward Thomas, included many references to the game in the different settings of the film. But they also shot as much as they could in real places, like in very lost places in Africa.

On the other hand, Milla Jovovich confesses that Rathalos is her favorite creature; while for the director, his favorite is Nerscylla.

Monstrous Arsenal (5 min.):

The director is a huge fan of the series and wanted to be faithful to the film adaptation, so he chose some of the fan-favorite elements. Thus, the Hunter uses the Great Sword and the Great Bow. Whereas Milla Jovovich loves Double Swords.

These weapons and the rest that we see in the film were created by Kerry Von Lillienfeld, Monster Hunter Props Boss. In this way, we see how they created the Great Bow and the Great Sword for Tony Jaa, but also the Admiral’s ax for Ron Perlman.

Deleted scenes (3 minutes):

It consists of two deleted sequences.
