Gamers, don’t get too excited, the title of the movie is Monster Hunt, not Monster Hunter. The latter is a hit Japanese video game series from Capcom; the former is an upcoming Chinese fantasy film from Edko Films (House of Flying Daggers, Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West), and its first trailer is out.
If while watching the trailer you think the titular monsters look like something out of an animated DreamWorks film, don’t worry, you’re not insane. The associations probably has something to do with the fact that the director, Raman Hui has done a lot of work for DreamWorks Animation.
Based on the trailer, Monster Hunt looks like a lighthearted adventure film with a potentially heartwarming message about acceptance and some martial-arts and sword-fighting thrown in. Also, a man gives birth.
