What’s up, Contenders? Terry Malloy here reporting live from the Waterfront.
Twitchfilm has unearthed a fully awesome look at some monster footage from THE HOST 2, the follow up to the Korean sensation THE HOST.
Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I didn’t even know that a sequel to THE HOST was a guaranteed thing that was happening, much less that there was already complete footage!
So this is some of the most exciting news I’ve heard since ole George up and sold the rights to STAR WARS a couple of weeks back.
Plus, I’m a HUGE fan of this footage. The monster from THE HOST is easily my favorite all-CGI monster to date, and that includes some of the great work from Guillermo Del Toro’s filmography. While being a complex design, you can see all the detail on the HOST beast. And it isn’t overly complicated. But I think my favorite aspect is its puppy-like coordination and mannerism. Although it really wants to devour you, it also looks like kind of a big, uncoordinated puppy dog that is just misunderstood.
Anyway, what do you all think of this sequence? As you can tell… I’m sold.
And I’m Out.
