The official plot synopsis for the film is also revealed by distribution company Screen Gems recently, which is as follows.

Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.

The image features Milla Jovovich as Lt. Natalie Artemis, an original character created solely for the film and not from the game series. Actor Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak, Tom-Yum-Goong) appears as one of skilled warriors that battles large monsters called The Hunter.

Artemis is shown carrying a pair of Dual Blades on her back, a carving knife on thigh and a Slinger on left arm that she showed off earlier on Instagram. Hunter is seen wielding an iconic Giant Jawblade from the game and a Great Hunter's Bow, a look inspired from the Field Team Leader of Monster Hunter: World.

Anderson said in an interview from the set in South Africa that even though the character Artemis is an original character who never existed in the game, her armor and equipment will take direct inspiration from the game franchise.

Take Artemis' chest piece for instance as the Odogaron chest piece takes reference from Monster Hunter: World and the embossing designs are similar as well. Her different outfit only means that she is an avatar of audience that can be customized with different sets.

Although Jovovich herself has been posting photos from the set of the movie for some time that gave us some early glance, none of them actually revealed anything other than what sort of direction the movie is going for or what character are in there.
