Ramen Hui’s upcoming Monster Hunt is going to be a sight to behold. As you can see in this first trailer, it’s a period piece, a comedic fantasy adventure, a kid-friendly romp, and features a pregnant dude who gives birth to a monster that looks like an albino turnip. Yeah. Take a look for yourself after the jump.
Hui is most known for his work as an animator and director at Dreamworks, contributing to Shrek, even helming the third film, as well as working on the How to Train Your Dragon TV show. That experience is definitely evident in the creature design and overall tone of this trailer.
This is Edko Films (House of Flying Daggers) most expensive film to date, and looks it, with tons of creatures and sweeping action sequences. Check out the Monster Hunt trailer below.
