A new trailer for director Brad Anderson’s (The Machinist) upcoming thriller The Call has been released online. The film stars Halle Berry as a 911 operator who, after taking a life-altering call from a teenager (Abigail Breslin) that’s been kidnapped, realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life. This trailer is a bit more intense and less plot-driven than the first one, and it’s quite effective. Anderson looks to have crafted a surprisingly involving and potentially frightening thriller, and I’m getting a strong “twisted villain” vibe from this trailer. Here’s hoping the full film delivers.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Morris Chestnut, Michael Eklund, and Michael Imperioli. The Call opens on March 15th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Call:
When veteran 911 operator, Jordan (Halle Berry), takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life.
