A Monster Calls Trailer

"How does the story begin…?" Focus Features has unveiled a wonderful full-length trailer for J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, which looks like it's going to be much much better than Steven Spielberg's The BFG. They're both about big friendly giants, though the one in this movie seems to a be a big tree monster, voiced by Liam Neeson. The boy is played by Lewis MacDougall, and the cast features Sigourney Weaver, Toby Kebbell, and Felicity Jones as his Mum. The first two teasers were fantastic, but this one is even better showing more footage of the monster and more of the story. I really love the music in this, I love the atmosphere, I love the way the story is introduced, I'm pretty dang excited to see this. Give it a look below.

Here's the newest trailer (+ poster) for J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, originally debuted by USA Today:

You can still see the first two trailers for A Monster Calls here + here, to see even more footage from this.

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.

I am Groot! Nice cinematography. Let's hope it will be more interesting than The BFG

He didn't say 'I am Groot'. But ok, I hope that kid will find the courage in himself on the end ...

I'd love to see this set against the same song they used in that stunning trailer for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. (Arcade Fire's WAKE UP)

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE was such a depressing experience.

I just watched The Impossible for the first time this week as holy fuck is that a gut wrenching and beautiful film. The orphanage was excellent as well. This is near the top of my hype list.
