So how awesome is it when the big studios burp up a kids’ flick that is somewhat in sync with your own interests? Cars, for example, has surely saved the sanity of many Street Machine-reading parents, and it looks like we have another good one coming up in 2017.
Best described as a cross between Transformers, ET the Extra Terrestrial and Christine, Monster Trucks looks like being a great story with plenty of automotive action thrown in. Directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) and co-starring Gen-X heroes Rob Lowe and Danny Glover, Monster Trucks was made with a reputed US$100 million budget. Well worth it for the temporary peace it will no doubt bring to car-loving households all over the globe.
It opens in the US on 13 January 2017.
