On the topic of WWE Studios (see: previous post on Dead Man Down), it turns out that they are actually involved in another movie that is coming to theatres next month as well. The Call is a thriller previously known as The Hive that was moved up from a late summer release slot after the Carrie remake was delayed. Halle Berry plays a 911 operator who receives an emergency call from a kidnapped girl (Abigail Breslin) and gets pulled into the situation upon realizing that she knows the kidnapper.
I have to admit, the trailer looks pretty generic but apparently early test screenings were strong which is why Sony decided to give it a wide release. I guess that doesn’t necessarily mean the movie is actually good, however, the movie also happens to be directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian) which has me moderately curious. Unfortunately, his last movie Vanishing on 7th Street was also a real stinker. The Call hits theatres on March 15th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
