The new trailer shows off a few more of the titular monsters (including creepy spider-like creatures), which still look pretty darn good. The set design looks great, and it’s nice to see swords and bows take center-stage as opposed to guns and grenades. Perhaps most importantly, the film’s humor is on display, showing the film doesn’t seem to take itself as seriously as the initial trailer perhaps insinuated. Monster Hunter
Speaking of which, the trailer ends with our first look at palico cook extraordinaire Meowscular Chef. Director Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed the appearance of Palicos in October, and said Meowscular Chef in particular would have a “flirtatious” relationship with Milla Jovovich’s character. Based on the sassy kissy face the character throws out in the trailer, he might not be lying.
Monster Hunter releases in theaters this December and stars Milla Jovovich, Ron Perlman, Tony Jaa, and Clifford “T.I.” Harris.
