It’s been about two years since the Juan Antonio Bayona-directed A Monster Calls began its journey, with Focus Features giving it an October 14, 2016 date and setting Felicity Jones to star and Liam Neeson to voice the Monster. Since then, Jones has been nominated for an Oscar (The Theory Of Everything) and landed a starring role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Here’s the latest look at the fantasy pic based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel by Patrick Ness, about a young boy (Lewis MacDougall) who attempts to deal with his the illness of his mother (Jones) and school bullies by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales. Ness wrote the novel based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd, and he adapted the screenplay.
Belen Atienza (Bayona’s The Impossible and The Orphanage) produced the movie which actually has the feel of of another Atienza-produced film: Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth. Executive producers are River Road’s Bill Pohlad and Mitch Horwits, Participant Media’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, and Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger.
Check out the new trailer above from UK distributor Entertainment One.
The monster does not come walking often. This time it comes to Connor, and it asks for the one thing Connor cannot bring himself to do. Tell the truth. This is a very touching story about a boy who feels very damaged, guilty and mostly angry. He struggles at school with bullies, and pity looks from everyone, and at home with his mother’s sickness. Will Connor overcome his problems? Will everything be okay? Will Connor be able to speak the truth?
