Monster Trucks trailer has real heart

Lucas Till stars in the first trailer for action-adventure Monster Trucks

If you’re looking for something that fits the coveted ‘ridiculous but somehow strangely loveable’, than Monster Trucks could well be it. Monsters inside trucks – need we say anything else?

Below is the synopsis:
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.

Till (X-Men: Apocalypse) leads a cast that includes the likes of Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Rob Lowe (St Elmo’s Fire), Holt McCallany (Blackhat), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), Frank Whaley (Luke Cage, Barry Pepper (Battlefield Earth) and Thomas Lennon (Transformers: Age Of Extinction). Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots, Epic) is directing from a script penned by Derek Connolly (Jurassic World, Safety Not Guaranteed).

Monster Trucks will be released in cinemas on 3 February 2017. For more news about the biggest movies, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
