Wondering how the story went from a book to a film? Then watch this featurette "A MONSTER CALLS - 'The Story Behind the Story'"
Then get ready for when Focus Features A MONSTER CALLS opens December 23rd, 2016 and nationwide on January 6th, 2017
A visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”).
12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away.
But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night.
Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.
Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, and Liam Neeson
Watch the trailer
Directed by: J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible,” “The Orphanage”)
Written by: Patrick Ness, based on his novel A Monster Calls
