The initially Monster Hunter trailer looked appealing however likewise gathered a great deal of flak for appearing more like a boring action movie than an enjoyable monster-slaying experience. Those searching for something more devoted needs to view the brand-new trailer for the movie’s Chinese release, which looks a lot more fantastical and even offers us our very first take a look at a particular cooking talented Palico.
The brand-new trailer flaunts a couple of more of the titular beasts (consisting of scary spider-like animals), which still look quite darn great. The set style looks fantastic, and it’s good to see bows and swords take center-stage rather than weapons and grenades. Perhaps most significantly, the movie’s humor is on display screen, revealing the movie doesn’t appear to take itself as seriously as the preliminary trailer maybe insinuated. Monster Hunter looks tacky and enjoyable, and it needs to be, provided it’s about individuals wielding large bone weapons and socializing with talking felines.
Speaking of which, the trailer ends with our very first take a look at palico cook extraordinaire Meowscular Chef. Director Paul W.S. Anderson validated the look of Palicos in October, and stated Meowscular Chef in specific would have a “flirty” relationship with Milla Jovovich’s character. Based on the sassy kissy face the character tosses out in the trailer, he may not be lying.
Monster Hunter releases in theaters this December and stars Milla Jovovich, Ron Perlman, Tony Jaa, and Clifford “T.I.” Harris.
