This film is based on a book by the same name and by the author Patrick Ness. Has anyone read this? If so, do you think a movie adaption is a good idea, or should I search out the book and read it? Unfortunately I am not a big reader, I’m just going to say that I don’t have the time, but then I guess if I really wanted to read, I’d make to for it, right!?

The cast is very interesting, we have Liam Neeson, of which he is not seen in this trailer, just heard. It does look like he is going to be the ‘monster’, so I am assuming we will only hear Liam and not actually see him performing awkward stunts, such as in Taken 35. There is also a strong female representation with Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver, which is also exciting.

Additionally the cinematography looks promising, it seems like they are going for an artistic look, dark and borderline scary, scary good. Keen to hear your thoughts on this one! Curious or not?
