Nearly seven years after Bong Joon-ho’s The Host hit the States, Ning Hao is behind the camera on Host 2 3D, the Korean sequel that’s been kept pretty tight-lipped, sans the continual leak of information of imagery and clips.
The sequel was said to have to tread carefully to avoid criticizing the Chinese government as the story will concern a calamity caused when people ignore a monster due to their desire for money.
Our friends at Twitch have caught wind of the first ever footage from the flick, one via a Macrograph 2012 showreel (see the monster starting at 0.27 and 3.00), the other in a full fledged clip! Says the site, the footage shows the hungry creature wrecking havoc upon an unsuspecting family, tearing up on a moving truck, and then chasing two helpless children for a quick snack.
The CG effects were produced domestically by Macrograph, the VFX company behind R2B: Return to Base (aka Soar Into the Sun), A Chinese Ghost Story and Stephen Chow’s upcoming Journey to the West.
