Director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Monster Hunter movie rolls ever-forward towards its December 30th release date, pushed up from a pushed back 2021 release date, and now we’re in the real thick of the Hollywood advertising machine. So, finally, the information you wanted: Yes, it will have Palicos. Yes, it will have the Meowscular Chef. The information came alongside a new trailer, above, an extension of the recent Diablos trailer that includes a Rathalos for good measure.
Why then, you might ask, have we not seen trailers with adorable felines to this point? I have no idea. Seems like a good idea to press the movie’s potential multi-generational family appeal. Dunno.
Also, apparently, Meowscular Chef will like Milla Jovovich’s character. Anderson described their relationship as “rather flirtatious” and “really interesting” which I am not emotionally nor mentally prepared to comment on.
I previously called this movie a “dumpster fire” but now it seems like maybe it could be a funny, schlocky-goodness dumpster fire. As always, I will continue to post about this movie, even if they tell me to stop.
