The action-filled movie Monster Trucks, with chase scenes shot in downtown Chilliwack, is set to finally hit theatres next January.

Two years ago, Chilliwack experienced a massive influx of motion picture excitement as trucks and talent rolled in and crews set up for live action shoots.

Traffic delays and road closures were how some Chilliwack residents remember the film shoot.

Principal photography took place in May of 2014 in the ‘Wack, and crews returned again in February of last year to finish off with a few extra scenes.

The premise of Monster Trucks! has high school senior Tripp (Lucas Till) building a monster truck from spare parts. He meets a friendly creature with a taste for speed, and cue the action!

The family friendly movie from Paramount Pictures was shot in RealD 3D, and it blends “cutting edge visual effects” with “state-of-the-art” computer animation work.

The trailer came out this week, and the flick was directed by Ice Age director Chris Wedge.
