The most recent trailer for the Monster Hunter movie left fans happier than the first, in which several military personnel is seen facing the powerful monsters of the series, which at first made many think that the film would go for the wrong address. Maybe you wondered where the idea of presenting a group of soldiers from our world came from instead of using characters originating from the Monster Hunter universe and the answer is curious since the inspiration comes from a video game.
Paul WS Anderson, director of the Monster Hunter adaptation to the cinema, has made it clear that he is a fan of the franchise and has revealed that before having the opportunity to get the rights to the series to take it to the cinema, he tried the games and in an On occasion he commented that with the movie Monster Hunter he wanted to communicate the wonder he felt for the first time when he entered the world of the series in a video game, which he would achieve through a human character (Mila Jovovich and the group of soldiers) above to this fantastic world.
Well, to make this connection between the real world and the Monster Hunter universe he was inspired by a Metal Gear game, the Konami franchise. “I was very influenced by a crossover Monster Hunter had done with Metal Gear Solid, This is great imagery to juxtapose a man with a machine gun against the creatures,” Anderson said in an interview (via GameSpot ).
SNAKE FOUGHT MONSTER HUNTER CREATURES IN METAL GEAR SOLID
In case you don’t know, the collaboration Anderson refers to is the one that took place in the PlayStation Portable game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which received themed content to promote Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Thanks to this cross-over, a couple of missions were added to the game in which Big Boss has to go hunting a Rathalos and a Tigrex and he does not use Monster Hunter weapons, such as swords and shields, but bomb rifles and more. real-world artillery.
But don’t think that since they worked for Snake, weapons will abound in the movie. As we discussed, Anderson’s idea is to show how dependent humans are on weapons. In the film, the protagonists (who ended up in the Monster Hunter world due to a strange phenomenon) will see that they do not work against monsters and will later use equipment from the series.
