The ‘A Monster Calls’ Teaser Trailer Hints at Fantasy and Heartbreak to Come

Based on the Patrick Ness book of the same name, A Monster Calls tells the heart-breaking story of Conor, who is struggling with bullies at school, his mother’s fight with cancer at home and a monstrous tree straight from his nightmares.

Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona — who made the horrifying film The Orphanage — and starring Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver, we have high hopes that this fantastical novel is well-suited for the big screen.

Despite the super early promotion of the film, Ness’ adaptation will not hit theatres until October 14, 2016.

You can watch the official teaser trailer (narrated by Liam “the Gravelly Monster” Neeson) below — we’re sure the actual trailer will follow eventually.

A visually spectacular drama from acclaimed director Juan Antonio Bayona (“The Impossible”), based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel. 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.
