An epic creature adventure that became China’s biggest box-office hit ever is coming to the States this month in two different versions. We’ve got the complete rundown of which one will be playing where, plus the latest trailer, past the jump.

Directed by Raman Hui, MONSTER HUNT is set, according to the official synopsis, “in a mythical ancient world where monsters rule the land while humans keep to their own kingdom. But when adorable baby monster Wuba is born to a human father and monster queen, mortals and creatures alike set out to capture the newborn, and Wuba’s epic adventure begins.”
