The clips are coming quick and fast in the run up to the release of A Monster Falls, which is set to be unleashed in January in the UK and USA. In this new clip from the film, Connor is quietly bullied by a fellow student in the cafeteria, which leads Liam Neeson’s Monster to take shape. It’s clearly taken a leaf out of the NeverEnding Story’s book, but this clip is a great example of the film’s more action-packed moments.
In A Monster Calls a young boy called Connor (Lewis MacDougall) seeks the company of a tree monster to help cope with his mother’s dwindling health. Faced with a life without his parent, Connor must muster the courage to cope independently with the problems that life is throwing at him. It’s a touching and creative adventure that is definitely worth checking out in the New Year. We love the film’s blend of live-action and beautiful animation which reflects the film’s to-and-fro with heart-rending emotion and feel-good drama.
A Monster Calls comes from director J. A. Bayona (The Orphanage) and additionally stars Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones and Toby Kebbell. The film will be released on 1st January 2017 in the UK and 6th January 2017 in the USA.
