There are very few times when I see a trailer for a film and think “I absolutely have to go see that!” Honestly, there are many films I want to see, think will be awesome to see, but not as many that I feel like so compelled to see as I KILL GIANTS (in select theaters and On Demand now.) Thanks to my partnership with RLJ Entertainment, I have some insights on I KILL GIANTS to share with you along with a wonderful giveaway… read on!
Immediately, the trailer for I KILL GIANTS drew me in. It’s really no wonder as to why when I learned the film is from the producer of Harry Potter. Check it out and you’ll see what I mean:
Doesn’t that just speak to you? As a child, I always felt a bit out of place so I immediately identified with Barbara Thorson (Madison Wolfe.) Though I didn’t have to contend with fighting giants I fought other common battles with bullies and the “popular crowd” who were never quite sure what to make of the rebellious tomboy bookworm that I was.
These early experiences built a foundation for the strong woman I was to become. One who eventually found the strength within to stand up for myself and be comfortable being exactly who I was meant to be.
With powerful female characters with an almost entirely female cast, I KILL GIANTS, is exactly the type of film that would have resonated with the my younger self and still greatly appeals to the more mature, wiser version I’ve become. This is a film I’d love to have my sons view with me as I think it’s super important to have them see strong women characters in action on the big screen (and off!)
I haven’t read the novel the story is based on yet, but intend to do that, as well! I wish this film would have gotten more press and I’m happy to be a part of the movement to share it. Be sure to pass the word along that there’s a wonderful new film out there focused on dealing with bullying, standing up for yourself, finding strength within yourself, and imagination vs. reality!
