Close your eyes and let your imagination do the work. Listen to Liam Neeson as he reads the first chapter of Patrick Ness' A MONSTER CALLS. The film, directed by J.A. Bayona opens in Los Angeles and New York THIS FRIDAY December 23rd and expand nationwide on January 6, 2017.
A MONSTER CALLS is 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.
