Monster Hunt trailer

Posted on

The new trailer for Monster Hunt, a Chinese film that broke box office records in its home country, is full of quirky characters like the titular monster, a baby creature born to a human man.

Monster Hunt is set in an ancient world where monsters and humans live, but far from in perfect harmony: The movie follows the two races as they threaten and try to capture the baby monster, “Huba.”

Shrek animator Raman Hui directed the film, which features both live-action shots and CGI effects. See the poster and trailer below, and watch Monster Hunt when it arrives in U.S. theaters Jan. 22.
