This new drama fantasy film from Focus Features and Juan Antonio Bayona"s A Monster Calls (2016) looks like it has so much potential to be one of the better (2016) children films out there with a deeper story for the adults too. Lewis MacDougall, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Liam Neeson, and Sigourney Weaver star in A Monster Calls with the movie releasing in theaters on October 21, 2016.

Synopsis: 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.
