The first footage from The Host 2 has gone online. The film is a direct sequel to director Bong Joon-ho’s 2006 South Korean monster movie The Host. The original centered on an amphibious monster that emerged from the Han River and began attacking random citizens, and gained particular praise for its political commentary as well as its effective genre touches. The follow-up is directed by Park Myeong-chan, a commercials director, and the first footage comes by way of a clip from visual FX house Micrograph that breaks down some of the film’s effects shots. The shot in question is a terrifying monster attacking a group of children.
