I’m excited to be in LA today for the A Monster Calls press junket! I had a chance to watch a small preview of the film early this summer and just those few minutes were GREAT, so I can’t wait to see the full film in the morning. Later in the day we’ll have a chance to interview Felicity Jones about her role as Mum. Be sure to check back next month to read my interview and more about the film! Then be sure to see it when it arrives in theaters on December 23rd, just in time for Christmas.
A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.
