Second Teaser Trailer for J.A. Bayona's Monster Movie 'A Monster Calls'
"That tree is amazing… Its been here for thousands of years." Focus Features has debuted a second teaser trailer for J.A. Bayona's new monster movie called A Monster Calls, about a tree monster voiced by Liam Neeson who helps a young kid deal with bullying and the challenges of real life. The first teaser trailer for this was so impressive it was considered a must watch, and this new trailer is also incredible (despite the VFX needing a bit more work). The boy is played by Lewis MacDougall, and the cast features Sigourney Weaver, Toby Kebbell, and Felicity Jones as his Mum. Highly recommend watching this teaser below.
Here's the second teaser trailer for Juan Antonio Bayona's A Monster Calls, direct from Focus' YouTube:
12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) attempts to deal with his mother's (Felicity Jones) illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales that explore courage, loss, and faith. A Monster Calls is a "visually spectacular drama" from Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona, of The Impossible and The Orphanage previously. The film is based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel of the same name, adapted by the author Patrick Ness. Focus Features will release J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls in theaters everywhere starting October 21st, 2016 later in the fall.
