Right, okay, yes… “does what it says in the tin” is a buzz phrase well past its “not-cool-by” date now, but Monster Trucks… well, it’s got a monster and it’s got trucks. You join the dots. It’s also got Lucas Till from X-Men: First Class and MacGyver, as Tripp, who builds a monster truck from 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.
It’d directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) and is set for a UK release on Boxing Day.
