Described as a visually spectacular drama, Focus Features will screen The Orphanage director Juan Antonio Bayona’s A Monster Calls at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival ahead of its October 21st theatrical release. It will be the film’s World Premiere.
Based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel, “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.”
Lewis MacDougall, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Liam Neeson, and Sigourney Weaver all star.
Check out the official one-sheet with the fantastical trailer here.
