From director J.A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE) comes A MONSTER CALLS. The story follows 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, who finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster (Liam Neeson) guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth.

This film seems to share a lot of similarities with Guillermo del Toro's PAN'S LABYRINTH, but I don't think that's a bad thing at all. I enjoy a good coming of age story, especially when they involve a sense of magical realism. THE IMPOSSIBLE was a hard-hitting and emotional story, and I expect no less from A MONSTER CALLS.

A MONSTER CALLS will open in theaters on October 21, 2016.

The BFG had Mark Rylance's face. How did you miss that?

Was there something negative in my post you felt the need to comment on? I'm happy to give you an answer. I missed that because the BFG might have been based on his face, but it's still cgi done in a cartoonish way--unless you really think his ears and nose are that proportionately big-- so maybe it's just me, but if you didn't know it was Rylance, I wouldn't fault you for thinking it looked like a caricaturized, older, cgi Liam. A while back I think I had heard about Neeson lending his voice

A while back I think I had heard about Neeson lending his voice to this movie, also based on a children's book, where he happens to play a giant cgi fantasy creature who befriends a kid, and so I probably just had a mental lapse, and I acknowledged I was mistaken in my comment. I've seen Mark Rylance perform in person, and I loved the BFG book when I was a kid, but I don't honestly keep up with who is in every kid's movie these days, especially based solely on glimpses of animated characters from a trailer. But hey if you do, then more power to you!

Pan's Labyrinth meets The BFG?

The monster looks like Groot's dad or an "ent" from LOTR. Those seasoned UK actors are good at the epic monster roles. When I saw the first trailer for the BFG, I thought THAT was Liam Neeson, until I saw in the credits it was Mark Rylance. Also, always good to see Toby Kebbell in something, and it's refreshing that he's not a bad guy in this.
