I Kill Giants trailer: The graphic novel comes to life
Yahoo has debuted the trailer for the upcoming graphic novel adaptation I Kill Giants, which you can check out in the player below! Directed by Anders Walter, the film stars Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar), Madison Wolfe (The Conjuring 2, Joy), and Imogen Poots (Green Room).
Life is not easy for our young heroine, Barbara Thorson (Wolfe). Defiant, precocious, outspoken, and a loner, Barbara relates more to the make-believe world of Dungeons & Dragons. At home, she makes life difficult for her older sister, Karen (Poots), who is responsible for taking care of her and her brother. At school, psychologist Mrs. Mollé (Saldana) takes an interest in Barbara’s increasingly worrisome behaviour.
As she deals with loss and bullying, Barbara’s imagined life begins spilling into her real one and she becomes obsessed with what she sees as her quest: killing giants. It’s only when she’s forced to face the truth and overcome her fears that Barbara is able to confront her demons.
Based on Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura’s graphic novel, and produced by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), the film arrives in theaters, On Demand and on Digital HD March 23.
