A Monster Calls by Rico Jr

Directed by J.A. Bayona and from the award winning team behind Pan’s Labyrinth and The Impossible,
A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular and stunningly emotional drama based on the award-winning novel.
A MONSTER CALLS is in cinemas New Year’s Day.

Ahead of the film’s UK cinema release on New Year’s Day, Entertainment One Films UK and Poster Spy are inviting artists to create their very own alternative film poster for the truly remarkable, A Monster Calls.

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. Also featuring Liam Neeson who will star in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting monster of the title, and Sigourney Weaver as the maternal grandmother.

Designers should draw on the film’s extraordinary visuals and its emotional themes, but please do be creative! The more original, the better and the winning design will be selected by celebrated Illustrator Jim Kay, the illustrator behind the A Monster Calls book as well as the recent Harry Potter editions.

The winner will have their artwork printed and placed in select Odeon Cinemas as well as receiving a cash prize of £350 and a signed copy of A Monster Calls Special Collector’s Edition book, signed by Jim Kay and the Author Patrick Ness

This contest is open WORLDWIDE.
