“Monster Hunter”: Diablos prints a new promotional image for the adaptation; Check out!

Sony Pictures has released a new promotional image for the ‘Monster Hunter’ adaptation, starring Milla Jovovich, which brings the size comparison between the creature known as the Diablos and the Hunters.


The feature will not arrive in Brazilian cinemas until the end of this month, but it is already showing in international markets, including in China (one of the biggest in the film circuit). However, the film does not seem to appeal to audiences due to a racist joke against the Chinese people that led distributors to cancel showings.

According to Twitter profile @ gavinfeng97, “All opening hours for the feature film are canceled. Exhibitors received notifications at midnight yesterday without much specific reason. However, the industry believes this is due to a racist joke about the Chinese after viewers took to Twitter to report it.

The scene in question involves the character of Tony Jaa. Then someone asks him: “What kind of knees are these?”; behold, Jaa replies “Chinese”, alluding to an offensive rhyme “Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees, look at that?”]

The children’s song is actually sung by English speakers who, during World War II, used the verses to make fun of children of Asian descent. In fact, according to the book “ Colors of Excellence: Hiring and Keeping Teachers of Color in Independent Schools, ” several Chinese-Americans recall suffering bad games with rhyme, making a stereotypical allusion that Eastern communities were not clean.
