So the Monster Trucks Movie isn’t about Monster Trucks

When I first heard of the “Monster Truck” movie, I presumed it would be about, well, you know, Monster Trucks. However as you can see from this trailer, the Monsters are actually in the trucks. Kind of. Just watch the trailer.

I almost want to give it a hug and say “It’s okay, weird movie. We understand what you’re trying to do.” The idea combining monsters, trucks, friendship, good versus evil, it all seems smart. Whether or not it works is pretty hard to say from that trailer, though.
