Paul W S Anderson’s big screen adaptation of the Capcom videogame series Monster Hunter is still heading to cinemas in the UK.

The latest videogame to movie production from writer/director Paul W S Anderson is his film take on the Monster Hunter series of titles. The film is one of the many caught up in the assorted delays caused as a result of cinema closures. Furthermore, it’s Sony backing the movie, which has been a studio on the whole reluctant to debut its films on streaming.

Thus, it’s held on where Monster Hunter is concerned, and the film will now be heading to UK cinemas from Friday 18th June (assuming indoor cinemas open on time in May). The movie has already enjoyed a release elsewhere in the world, to a mixed reception. We’ll be able to see for ourselves whether the Milla Jovovich-headlined film is worth a look in a few months’ time over here.

More on Monster Hunter as we hear it. Currently, there appears to be no plans for a Monster Hunter 2, though. We’ll let you know if that changes.
