    "I find giants. I hunt giants. I kill giants."

    So, the past decade has really been a high point for the graphic novel industry.

    Based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel, the story follows Barbara Thorson, a teenage girl who doesn't ~quite~ fit in with her peers.

    So, to deal with her bullied reality and troubled home life, she escapes into her own magical world where she, you guessed it, kills giants.

    However, with the help of her new friend, Sophia, and an understanding guidance counselor, she may not have to face EVERY giant alone.

    This movie honestly has me feeling some type of way* just from the trailer, so I can only imagine what the full film will make me emote.

    *That "type of way" is very nostalgic and somewhat sob-y.

    Also, it has Zoe Saldana in it, so you know it's going to be amazing, because she's amazing.
