TriStar Pictures has released a new trailer for The Call (formally known as The Hive), a sharp looking thriller from Brad Anderson, who is best known for directing Christian Bale in The Machinist.
The film stars Halle Berry as a 911 operator who receives an emergency call from a young girl (Abigail Breslin) who has been kidnapped. It becomes a real time cat and mouse chase to locate the girl before she is killed by the kidnapper (Michael Eklund). The plot is pretty formulaic and you may feel Liam Neeson has been here before with Taken, but Anderson looks to have put his stamp on it.
