“The Call” looks like the most mainstream thing director Brad Anderson has ever done (not counting all his TV work, I mean), and that alone, I think, makes it kind of an interesting project. This is, after all, the guy who gave us “Session 9” and “The Machinist”. It stars Halle Berry as a 911 phone operator who develops some kind of a vendetta against a serial killer. I mean, damn, talk about being committed to your job. Am I right, kids? I guess you’ll never be able to accuse her of being in it just for the cash.
Anyhoo. Take a look at three clips from Brad Anderson’s thriller “The Call”, take a lookers. (The film was originally called “The Hive”, which makes it sound like a horror movie with creatures and whatnot, so it was probably a good idea to change it to “The Call”, which is more mainstream/thriller-esque.)
When veteran 911 operator, Jordan, takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life.
“The Call” also stars Abigail Breslin, Michael Imperioli, Morris Chestnut, Michael Eklund, Ella Rae Peck, Justina Machado, David Otunga and Roma Maffia.
