In A Monster Calls, Liam Neeson Is a Tree Monster and It's Awesome

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

We’ve been excited about fantasy fairy tale movie A Monster Calls for months. It’s directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, The Orphanage), written by Patrick Ness (who wrote the source book), produced by Belen Atienza (Pan’s Labyrinth), and it stars Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver—and the booming voice of Liam Neeson.


Neeson’s character—a tree monster that’s thousands of years old—really shows his powers and impressive presence in this latest teaser. Suffice to say that Neeson has acquired some very particular skills this time.

To quote the dialogue: “Whoa, indeed!” A Monster Calls is due out October 14.
