The Monster Hunter movie is based on a world where giant, destructive monsters are prevalent and people called ‘hunters’ make a living by killing them for civilians.
Milla Jovovich’s character Lt. Natalie Artemis is the leader of a group of US Army Rangers who are accidentally transported into the Monster Hunter’s world. Where, they team up with a Hunter (Tony Jaa) and fight off monsters to survive and go back to the real world.
Milla Jovovich said: “Her character Natalie Artemis is a captain in US military and an Army Ranger.”
The actor added, “She’s tough, loyal and experienced.”
Milla disclosed that she took the inspiration for Natalie Artemis from her real friend, and she’s one of the few female Army Rangers in the US.
On the difference between her roles as Alice (Resident Evil) and Natalie (Monster Hunter), Milla Jovovich said: “Alice was pretty much an invention of the Umbrella Corporation. She wasn’t somebody who was good at making relationships.
“Artemis is a team member. She’s potentially a mom and wife. She is kind of every woman in a sense, albeit a strong, powerful woman. I think when you see the movie, you’ll just be able to relate to Artemis on a human level as opposed to Alice who was a bit more iconic superhero than like a real down to earth person.”
Monster Hunter was released in Germany in last December and will be released in India on February 5.
The movie is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, and the production companies are Tencent Pictures, Screen Gems, Toho Co., Ltd., Constantin Film, and Impact Pictures.
Paul W. S. Anderson, Martin Moszkowicz, Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, Dennis Berardi, and Ken Kamins are producers.
