Must Watch: First Trailer for Crazy Live-Action 'Monster Trucks' Movie
"Aren't you curious about where it came from?" Paramount has unleashed the first fun 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. The concept is kind of a mash-up between Transformers and Cars, with "monster trucks" that come to life as monsters, which seem to look like sharks. The ensemble cast includes Lucas Till, Jane Levy, Holt McCallany, Barry Pepper, Tucker Albrizzi, Danny Glover, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Frank Whaley, and Thomas Lennon. This looks surprisingly kind of awesome, I'm actually excited to check it out now. As wacky as it seems, there's an edge to it that makes it quite appealing.
Here's the first official trailer for Chris Wedge's Monster Trucks, in high def from Apple:
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. You up for this?
