Slated to be released on January 13th.

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming Monster Trucks movie.

The film stars Lucas Till as a high school student named Tripp who makes a monster truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars.  He lives a fairly ordinary life until accident at a nearby oil-drilling site awakens an odd "subterranean creature" who eventually becomes Tripp's friend.

Little else is known about the plot but it appears government agents are hunting the monster and Tripp does his best to protect him.  As part of this, the monster - named Preach - hides in Tripp's truck and acts as an engine.

Later in the movie, Tripp discovers that there are more monsters like Preach.  The monsters are all part of the same family so Tripp teams up with a scientist to reunite them.  This sets up an epic battle as the monsters hide in various different trucks and fight the government agents.

Monster Trucks is slated to be released on January 13th, 2017 and the film also stars Jane Levy, Amy Ryan, and Rob Lowe.
