‘Monster Trucks’ gets a trailer

This looks... Dumb?

Paramount has released the first Monster Trucks trailer. The story focuses on a high schooler who befriends a monster. Like you do. He then uses the monster to power his truck. Now I’m no mechanic, but I’m pretty sure that’s not how engines work.

Here’s the official synopsis for Monster Trucks:

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.

Monster Trucks opens January 13, 2017.
