Apparently, Hollywood is getting its favorite major bomb of a movie out of the way early in 2017.
Monster Trucks is apparently going to cost its studio a $115 million loss even though it just happened. The plot follows a young mechanic who finds a monster living in his truck who powers and controls the truck. Other monsters come around, take over those trucks…so…yeah. Monster Trucks.
The trailer reminds me of 1980s goofy sci-fi/kid befriends nice creature movies. A hundred and fifteen million lost on a live action kids film released in January? I don’t know, someone goofed up somewhere.
However, critics are calling it the biggest pile of crap to walk out of crapville. (They didn’t say that exactly but that’s the general summary).
I hate to get too down on Hollywood. I am always encouraging them to do something new and stop all the reboots and remakes. But I guess you walk a fine line when it comes to kids movies. Animated appeals to kids more than live action.
Oh well. Monster Trucks, we hardly knew ye. What say you, 3.5 readers?
