When a sandstorm transports Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good and Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are surprised to discover that this unknown and hostile setting is home to huge and terrifying monsters that are immune to its firepower. ”
“In its desperate battle for survival the unit encounters a mysterious hunter (Tony Jaa) whose unique abilities allow him to stand up to powerful creatures. As Artemis and the hunter gain confidence, she will discover that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger that threatens to destroy their world, the brave warriors will combine their unique abilities to unite in the ultimate battle, ”reads the main plot of this new Sony Pictures adaptation, whose theatrical release is now set for April 23 of 2021.
