Monster Trucks may be a family action-adventure movie, but I think you’ll agree after watching the official trailer above that horror fans are likely to get a kick out of it.
In theaters January 13, 2017 via Paramount Pictures, the film melds cutting-edge visual effects and state-of-the-art CGI. I’m getting a definite Steven Spielberg vibe from it, which is always encouraging.
Monster Trucks is directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) and stars Lucas Till, Jane Levy, Barry Pepper, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Thomas Lennon, and Holt McCallany.
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.
Kile Glover (pictured above on the right), the 11 year old son of Tameka Foster/Raymond and Ryan Glover and the stepson of Usher, has passed away. He was declared brain dead after a jet ski accident and had been on life support. He was taken off life support this past week. Our prayers are with the family and friends of Kile, especially his parents.
