Have you ever faced such adversity, especially in your childhood that you wished you could just escape to another world? I know for the most part I did. Between being bullied in school and my parent’s marital problems, I longed for a friend that would take me away to a place where I could just be myself, or more. This is why I can not wait until October for the release of A Monster Calls based on the book by J.A Bayona. I love when a book I love is made into a movie, and with Focus Features, I know it’s being made right! When a book is brought to life in movie form, something magical happens. I look forward to bringing you even more information on this movie as I receive it.
For now, we have this teaser poster for A Monster Calls that I will be sharing with you:
As I have more info about this movie I will share it here so be sure to come back and check often. In the meantime you can follow the hashtag #AMonsterCalls to stay up to date!

Story: 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.

Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.
