Two months from the film’s official premiere date, I Kill Giants has just released a full official trailer. The dramatic film is based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel by Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura, with Joe Kelly adapting his own work for the screen. First-time feature film director Anders Walter helmed the fantasy thriller.
The cast of I Kill Giants includes Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Beyond, the Guardians of the Galaxy films), Imogen Poots (Roadies, That Awkward Moment), Madison Wolfe (Zoo, The Conjuring 2), and Sydney Wade (Wolfblood, Happy Valley). Michael Barnathan, Chris Columbus, Kyle Franke, Kim Magnusson, Adrian Politowski, and Nick Spicer served as producers.
I Kill Giants had its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. RLJE Films is targeting a March 23, 2018 theatrical release as well as a simultaneous release On Demand and Digital HD for those audiences who didn’t catch it at the festival.
The Plot: I Kill Giants tells the story of Barbara Thorsen (Madison Wolfe), a teenage girl who chooses to escape the realities of school and a drab family life by retreating into her magical world of Titans and Giants. With the help of her new friend Sophia (Sydney Wade) and her school therapist (Zoe Saldana), she will learn to battle her Giants and face her fears – tackling the mean bullies at school, her sister (Imogen Poots) and her difficult work situation, and eventually her fear of death.
