Paramount Pictures Australia has sent over the first look image and trailer for their next big event film, MONSTER TRUCKS. Directed by Chris Wedge, it stars Lucas Till as 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.
Also starring Jane Levy, Barry Pepper, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Thomas Lennon, Holt McCallany, the film doesn’t just refer to the giant trucks that are driven, but something far more…literal. It’s like a blend between E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and Paramount’s own Transformers franchise.
MONSTER TRUCKS is released in Australia on 12 January 2017, and 13 January 2017 in the US from Paramount.
