If you are going to get any actor to voice your monster, you can do no wrong with Liam Neeson and he has one of the most recognisable voices in movies.

When you listen to the Irish actor talk you’re mesmerised from the word go and your emotions just wilt away. Now there’s another one of his particular set of skills revealed!

A Monsters Call might be a fantasy tale but it’s no ordinary tale one you might want to replace your popcorn with a packet of hankies as it deals with loss, life, death, faith and courage.You will be surprised to learn the Spanish director JA Bayona‘s  inspiration for the movie Is E.T and Never Ending Story.  It’s a dark movie full of emotion and Bayona who directed The Impossible (next Jurassic World 2) you would expect something like The Orphanage (which he worked on).

A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular drama from acclaimed director Juan Antonio Bayona (“The Impossible”), based on the award-winning 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.
