Liam Neeson lends his voice to the film adaptation of the children’s story A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. If Patrick Ness’ name sounds familiar, yes, you did just read about him being the writer behind the Doctor Who spin-off Class.

In 2011 Ness released the fantasy novel A Monster Calls, based on the idea of author Siobhan Dowd. Dowd passed away before she could write the book.

The story follows a 12-year-old boy (Lewis MacDougall) who is grappling with his mother being ill and problems at school. Felicity Jones portrays his young mother, saying to her son in the trailer, “Me and you, we’re a team.”

It’s a nice sentiment, but it’s not enough of a support system for the young boy. He calls on a monster (Neeson) to help him work through his troubles.

A Monster Calls will hit U.S. theaters on October 14, 2016.
