A Monster Calls, Trailer

The movie is nearly a year away, but the first trailer for the live-action feature based on Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls, (Candlewick, 2011) has just been released.

The growly voice-over is by Liam Neeson. The movie stars Lewis MacDougall (Pan) as a boy whose mother, played by Felicity Jones, is dying. Sigourney Weaver plays his grandmother.

The book is based on an idea by YA author and activist Siobhan Dowd, who died before she could complete the project (read Ness’s tribute to her in a sample from OverDrive).

A trade paperback edition with the words on the cover,  “Soon to be A Major Motion Picture” was released in August.
