The fantasy action film is produced, written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, and stars his wife Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, T.I., and others. It also features Jin Au-Yeung, better known as Mc Jin. He is the first Asian-American solo rapper to sign to a major label and is well known in China for his appearance on the popular competition show “The Rap of China.”
The movie is loosely based on the immensely popular role-playing video game series of the same name, developed by Japan’s Capcom, but sold and distributed in China by Chinese tech giant Tencent, whose film arm also co-produced the film.
“Monster Hunter” enjoyed midnight screenings in the small hours of Friday local time,
