Liam Neeson is doing something a little different from the Taken and Non-Stop action-fests he’s been best known for in the last few years, as he’s becoming a tree creature with A Monster Calls. J.A. Bayona directs the movie, based on the novel by Patrick Ness.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
We’ve got a long time to wait for this strange but intriguing looking movie, as it’s not due out until autumn 2016, but you can get your first taste with the teaser trailer below.
