Monster Trucks Trailer Is One Part Family Film, One Part Unhinged Madness

Paramount Pictures has released a trailer for the often-delayed Monster Trucks, a film about a family of monsters who hide in trucks while evading the government and helping Lucas Till learn about life.

At least, that’s the impression one can glean from this trailer, which may reveal a cult classic in the making:


Of course, the fact it’s Christmas 2015 release was pushed back over a year suggests it may just be mediocre. But it has been a long time since the major studios have given the world something like Gymkata or Over the Top. This may be a candidate with its 1990s toyline premise and wacky first impression.

Monster Trucks opens on January 13th, 2017.
