New Monster Hunter Movie Photo Shows Off Slinger

It is apparently no small point of pride for the people working on the upcoming Monster Hunter movie that the weapons in the film are accurate to the weapons in the game. The other day, a screen from the film showed a character carrying a rifle, causing fans to raise eyebrows at what exactly this movie was going for. Well, Milla Jovovich is happy to put doubts to rest.

Jovovich, who starred in every Resident Evil movie, often several times in the same movie, is also headlining Monster Hunter. As Natalie Artemis, Jovovich is on the team that first discovers that monsters are coming into our world. In the photo, as a response to the shot of the rifle, she shows off the stinger as an accurate Monster Hunter weapon that will be used.

In Monster Hunter World, the slinger is an item always on your hunter and can be loaded with different ammo and used to grapple hook around places.

Monster Hunter the movie does not yet have a release date, but principal photography began earlier this month. Earlier cast confirmations showed Ron Perlman and T.I. Harris also on Jovovich's anti-monster fighting team.
