@vincentvendetta: if it’s anything close to the quality of a Nolan movie then I’m all for it.
I rewatched The Dark Knight and Inception this summer; those were the only Nolan movies I liked. And then I realized I didn't like Inception anymore and hated The Dark Knight. Tenet is okay, but that's because it's the first movie of his I can call a "dumb action flick".
I'd still probably take a Nolan movie over the homogenous soup of Marvel, or any wannabe-Nolan (Looking at you, Denis Villeneuve! Fuck you!), but the amount of reverence people have for Nolan is insufferable.
So...Google has given me nothing and after rewatching the trailers I feel sure there's no Palico in either of the trailers. Imdb lists an actor for "Palico". I know this might be performance capture or voice acting, but as this actor has no listings on imdb for VA/VO, and is a short actor...Is it possible Paul WS Anderson is the kind of director that chooses to have an actor in a suit playing the Palicos?
@petesix0: I'm sure it's a stand-in; someone in a suit who can act opposite the actors, and that they can then improve later in post-prod (and if they can keep the actor's voice instead of dubbing it afterwards, good for them), instead of having just a tennis ball floating in mid-air. Like, you know there was a guy inside R2-D2, right? They didn't actually build an autonomous, fully-functioning robot for Star Wars.
Besides, I just read the director's interview with Polygon, and every design had to be approved by Capcom, so I'm sure they'll be fine. (I particularly like how, after the success of Monster Hunter: World, that so many Hollywood companies tried to get their hands on the licence, only to find it had been locked up for several years!)
This is the worst take I have seen in years, at least re: media and entertainment.
Only true Monster Hunter fans will risk getting COVID to see this in theaters.
I've said it before, this looks like dumb fun (this is coming from someone who recently watched all of the live action Resident Evil movies), but god I fucking hate the displaced soldier trope. It's not interesting. At all.
Trust your audience to get invested in the world your movie lives in. It worked for Warcraft.
Been going round in my head for a while, take out the displaced soldier trope(That exists to appeal to the same audience as loves the bad Transformers movies), and I'm not sure how you do it - and be successful. Mainly because while I only know the story beats of MHW and nothing about the earlier games, a movie about a collection of fantasy weapon-equipped warriors chasing monsters to study them by killing them(Slowly) might be a hard sell. Not saying there'd be no market for that, but Tarzan the Captain of the Japanese whaling fleet seems like it would maybe have problems, in places.
Is there a MH game with a less problematic story position for the characters than in World or are they all like that?
(Also this is not me saying there are no good ways to tell stories, my own thought would be make it about a person going on a long, lonely voyage - think climbing the tallest mountain or getting lost in the deepest jungle - and make it without conversation for 30mins+ before shockingly: monsters are real. But I do know that won't sell enough.)
Why... I don't see any reason why they couldn't just make a movie in the MH universe.. Why include a real-world element and a stupid dimensional portal and a "we gotta get home" plot ?
I imagine a real-world thread is a way of giving western casual audiences a bit of rope to get them interested instead of a big crazy monster movie from start to finish. The average movie goer is more inclined to see a real world flick with fantasy elements than go see full anime on screen.
Also as good as the monsters look, to echo @ulfhedinn above.. if Rathalos is the big baddie of the whole flick then man Tony Jaa is a real low level hunter I tell ya what..
I had never heard this story at all personally and I thought I would share for those who don't know about Paul W S Anderson. This is guy sucks to let this happen in the first place, and then he tried to screw this woman out of her money after. And then another guy died on the set of one of the RE movies.
I love Monster Hunter, but I won't be supporting this film.— ✸ Nickromancer ✸ (@NickolaiBoulton) October 15, 2020
Paul W.S Anderson's terrible directing choices and production management lead to Milla Jovovich's stunt double, Olivia Jackson to lose her arm during the production of a Resident Evil film.https://t.co/OKkPws0Iig
@toughshed: This story was pretty big a while back. The stunt actor in question got severely injured on top of losing the arm which is tragic. It is insane that after such a life changing accident the stunt company would try to argue against her. This womans career is basically over and she has, in addition to the loss of an entire arm, severe spinal and nerve damage. Business as usual in the world of business.
