When the trailer dropped for J.A. Bayona‘s A Monster Calls I was honestly excited. Mostly because I was just disappointed by Steven Spielberg‘s The BFG, but also because Bayona’s visual talents seem to be on full display in the trailer, which featured the voice of Liam Neeson as the titular monster.
The film was set to drop into theaters late October, but it now looks like we might have to wait a little longer to check out the film.
Focus Features will be releasing the film in a limited amount of theaters on December 23rd, with a larger expansion set for January 6th.
This could be because they feel that they have an Oscar contender in their hands or this could be because they want to try and capture the family crowd over the busy Holiday break.
Whatever the case, I’ll be checking it out and hopefully praising it in my review.
