"Meet Creech." Paramount has debuted a brand new trailer (see the first trailer) for the crazy live-action Monster Trucks movie, directed by Chris Wedge, who worked on Ice Age and Robots before making this leap into live-action. You've probably heard about this one because Paramount is bracing to lose millions of dollars making this, even though it is still two months out from release. I honestly don't think it looks that bad, there's an edge to it that seems like it's going to be fun - perhaps even moreso than the Transformers movies. This stars Lucas Till, Jane Levy, Holt McCallany, Barry Pepper, Tucker Albrizzi, Danny Glover, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Frank Whaley, and Thomas Lennon. Fire it up and meet a monster.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Chris Wedge's Monster Trucks, direct from YouTube:

Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp (Lucas Till), a high school senior, builds a Monster Truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend. Melding cutting edge visual effects and state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Trucks is an action filled adventure for the whole family that will keep you on the edge of your seat and ultimately touch your heart. Monster Trucks is directed by Chris Wedge (director of Blue Sky's Ice Age, Robots and Epic previously) from a screenplay by Derek Connolly. Paramount will release the film in theaters starting January 13th, 2017 early next year. Who's into this?

    Should have just animated this trash. It would probably do a lot better.

    Weeeeird.....that poster is terrible too...
  • It's a tv movie though? Seems pretty much in the tv zone.
  • shiboleth
    At least, it looks positive. Although incredible shallow at the same time ...
  • This is 90s CGI standard.
  • grimjob
    I might be interested if I was 12. Kids will enjoy it.
  • RAW_D
    Prediction: Straight to the bottom of the bargain bin and then forgotten, with the exception of those 2 or 5 kids who's parents dumped them at the theater for the afternoon to get a break from them.
  • As long as the movie knows exactly what it is, it could be a fun time for kids and adults looking to escape for a couple of hours.

    That poster is fucking hilarious.
