For the longest time, the release date for Paul W.S. Anderson's live-action Monster Hunter movie has been shrouded in mystery. We have had several updates on the day it is supposed to hit theatres, but the movie has been constantly been rescheduled.
At some point, Monster Hunter was expected to arrive in theatres in April of 2021, but it was later pushed forward to December of this year. The date was also changed, but it was ultimately revealed that the movie would finally release on Wednesday the 30th of December.
Deadline reports that Sony Pictures Releasing and Screen Gems have moved the release date once again, and Paul W.S. Anderson's Monster Hunter film will now be releasing on Friday the 25th of December; particularly making sure to go up against DC and Warner Bros. Pictures' Wonder Woman 1984.
