British actress Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Toby Kebbell star in new fantasy/drama film titled "A Monster Calls".

Synopsis: 13-year-old Conor O'Malley's mum, is dying of cancer, and Conor's having nightmares. In his recurring dream, a terrifying monster tries to pull his mother down into a pit, and Conor's at the edge trying to hang onto her hands. Not that we know this at the beginning. This dream is, in fact, the thing we wait the whole book to find out.

Every time Conor has the dream, he wakes up at exactly seven minutes past midnight. So when he wakes up one night and there's an actual monster outside his bedroom window, you'd think he'd be terrified. However, it's not the monster Conor's been expecting, so he's kind of unimpressed.

This monster spends its days as a yew tree in the cemetery behind his house, but at night it turns into a terrifying tree-creature with skin made of leaves and slices of bark for teeth. But Conor's not scared, because the monster in his dreams is way scarier, at least until the yew tree monster demands the scariest thing of all: the truth about Conor's nightmare.

What happens next?

The movie directed by Juan Antonio Bayona  will be in theatres on October 21, 2016.

Watch the trailer below.
