“Monster Trucks” is produced by Paramount Animation and Disruption Entertainment and directed by Chris Wedge from a script by Jonathan Aibel, Glenn Berger and Derek Connolly. The film stars Jane Levy, Lucas Till, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Barry Pepper and Holt McCallany.
The move leaves four other films opening on Christmas — Warner Bros.’ “Point Break,” Fox’s Jennifer Lawrence-David O. Russell project “Joy,” Open Road’s “Snowden” and Sony’s Will Smith-NFL drama “Concussion.”
Fox is opening “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip” on Dec. 23. It’s likely that the holiday season box office will be dominated by Disney’s much-anticipated “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which launches on Dec. 18.
“Monster Trucks” will now open against Lionsgate’s third “Divergent” film, “Allegiant Part 1.”
