New A Monster Calls Trailer Reveals Liam Neeson’s Monster

13 July 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every trailer so far for J.A. Bayona’s (The Impossible, The Orphanage) A Monster Calls has kept the titular monster under wraps, instead relying on Liam Neeson’s raspy vocals to create a sense of wonder and mystery for this adaption of the classic children’s fantasy novel. Now, the monster stands fully revealed, as does how visually impressive and unique this movie is going to be. Sharing DNA with both The Bfg and Where The Wild Things Are, this promises to be utterly fantastic, telling a story of pain, courage, and loss in a way we rarely see nowadays. Released: October 21st (U.S.)/January 6th 2017 (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: 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. »

Another Wonderful Trailer for J.A. Bayona's 'A Monster Calls' Arrives

13 July 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"How does the story begin...?" Focus Features has unveiled a wonderful full-length trailer for J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, which looks like it's going to be much much better than Steven Spielberg's The Bfg. They're both about big friendly giants, though the one in this movie seems to a be a big tree monster, voiced by Liam Neeson. The boy is played by Lewis MacDougall, and the cast features Sigourney Weaver, Toby Kebbell, and Felicity Jones as his Mum. The first two teasers were fantastic, but this one is even better showing more footage of the monster and more of the story. I really love the music in this, I love the atmosphere, I love the way the story is introduced, I'm pretty dang excited to see this. Give it a look below. Here's the newest trailer (+ poster) for J.A. Bayona's A Monster Calls, originally debuted by »

Watch Liam Neeson Voice a Tree-Beast in 'A Monster Calls' Trailer

13 July 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Steven Spielberg's The Bfg tanked hard at the box office, but the folks behind A Monster Calls believe that they'll find better success with a bigger, albeit less friendly, giant.

Liam Neeson voices a behemoth with eyes of fire and a body made from interwoven tree trunks in the upcoming fantasy film, set for a Halloween-hugging debut on October 21st. The kinda-imaginary, kinda-real titan appears in the film as a manifestation of young Conor O'Malley's (Pan's Lewis MacDougall) turbulent temper, a sort of coping mechanism to his mother's (Felicity Jones) declining health. »

Movie Review – Keanu (2016)

13 July 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Keanu, 2016.

Directed by Peter Atencio.

Starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man, Tiffany Haddish, Luis Guzman, Nia Long, Will Forte and Jason Mitchell.

Synopsis:

Two nerdy cousins pose as notorious gangsters to infiltrate the criminal underworld in order to retrieve a stolen kitten.

 

The main trio behind this film – the two leads Jordan Peele and Kegan-Michael Key, and its director Peter Atencio – mark their first big-screen collaborative effort here, a significant departure from their previous sketch-off TV outing of Key & Peele, to produce an action comedy that hinges on a silly premise. Keanu may retain the teams chemistry, but their small—screen past cannot mask some of their shortcomings.

In an explosive opening sequence, one that calls back to 90s John Woo action films, the audience witness the efficiency of two long-haired assassins known as the Allentown Boys, who decimate a Mexican drug operation. The Allentown Boys appear to »

A Monster Calls In Latest Trailer For Juan Antonio Bayona’s Fantastical Adventure

13 July 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’re still yearning for a giant adventure off the back of Spielberg’s The Bfg, Juan Antonio Bayona’s mystical adventure A Monster Calls ought to sate your appetite.

A visually sumptuous fantasy tale that’s relatively darker than Roald Dahl’s feel-good romp, Bayona’s latest creative venture is based on Patrick Ness’ novel of the same name. As illustrated in the all-new trailer below, A Monster Calls is the story of Conor O’Malley, a 14-year-old English schoolboy who perseveres through trials and tribulations – an ailing mother (Felicity Jones), bullies at school – that far exceed the normal drama an adolescent boy should face.

Played here by newcomer Lewis MacDougall, Bayona recently told USA Today that a heartfelt story is cinema’s greatest pull, stating that “we all need stories to understand our own reality. [This movie is] an homage to what we do as filmmakers: The stories tell us the truth. »

A Monster Calls Trailer Promises a Powerful and Emotional Journey

13 July 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This morning brings about a full length trailer for A Monster Calls, givings us our best look at the film's powerful story and Liam Neeson's monster in action.  Come inside to check out the amazing new trailer!

I already know that J.A. Bayona's adaptation of A Monster Calls is going to wreck me.  I can't even pretend like it's not going to happen.  The book itself is a powerful story of acceptance and loss through the eyes of a child and based off of this trailer, the film will be bringing the same level of emotion to the story.  

It's haunting and beautiful.  This trailer has given me chills each time I've watched it (already up to three just while writing this), and it looks wonderfully crafted.  I can't wait to see what the full film from Focus Features has to bring, even though I'm reasonably certain tears will be involved. »
