A Monster Calls

Everyone could use a giant tree monster at some point in their life, especially when going through the sort of problems that can typically be solved by a giant tree monster. Luckily, those happen to be the exact sort of problems that Lewis MacDougall is suffering from in J.A. Bayona’s upcoming film A Monster Calls, and he just so happens to have a giant tree monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) as a friend.

If you’re really eager to meet this tree monster, The A.V. Club is giving a few lucky readers a chance to see A Monster Calls for free at an early screening before the film’s wide release on January 6. The screening will be held on January 5 at Chicago’s AMC River East 21, and all you have to do to get tickets is provide your information at this link. Remember: Advance screenings are often intentionally overbooked, so be sure to arrive early if you want to secure a seat.
