Sony Playstation 5 :

The movie Monster hunter recently delighted us with a spectacular trailer where we got to know the character of Jovovich mile: Lieutenant Artemis. The film is preparing to debut in theaters in Spain and around the world next January 1, 2021, and meanwhile the director Paul WS Anderson (Resident Evil, Pompeii) wanted to share some curiosities of the project. For example, the Artemis character is heavily inspired by an old collaboration of Monster hunter with Metal Gear Solid.

In Monster Hunter we will also see a reflection of Metal Gear Solid

During a recent interview with the Sony Pictures YouTube channel, the filmmaker was asked Paul WS Anderson why the character of Jovovich mile is part of the army. “Well, it arose organically based on where Monster Hunter had been before,” Anderson said. “And he was very influenced by a crossover that Monster Hunter had done before with Metal Gear Solid“.

The collaboration Anderson refers to is none other than the one dating back to 2010: at that time, Konami announced that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was collaborating with the Capcom title Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. “This already exists,” Anderson continued, referring to the close relationship between the two sagas. “It is part of the mythology of the game. And I thought this was a great image to juxtapose: a man with a machine gun against the creatures“.

“A man with a machine gun against the creatures”

According to Anderson, adding the military was a surprising and different way to explore other themes in the film: “I thought it would be fun to play with. the arrogance of the modern world, in the sense that we put so much faith in technology, in fact too much in my opinion, “he said.” And of course, in the movie it doesn’t go so well. So, These people who have all these guns and all these vehicles just end up getting really screwed up“.
