“MONSTER HUNT” Cooks up an exclusive character posterMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
The MONSTER HUNT is coming from China to play American theaters in 2D and 3D, and distributor FilmRise passed on an exclusive character poster you can see past the jump.
Opening January 22 in both the original Mandarin-language version with subtitles and an English-language edition (go here for the complete theater listings), MONSTER HUNT became the biggest hit in Chinese box-office history last year. Directed by Raman Hui and scripted by Alan Yuen, it takes place “in a mythical ancient world where monsters rule the land while humans keep to their own kingdom,” per the official synopsis. “But when adorable baby monster Wuba is born to a human father and monster queen, mortals and creatures alike set out to capture the newborn, and Wuba’s epic adventure begins.” Pictured in the poster is the Cook, who appears to think Wuba would make a tasty dish.
