I think it would be safe to say that the Halle Berry thriller The Call was something of a surprise box office hit, albeit a minor one. If you didn’t heed the call of Brad Anderson’s latest you won’t have to wait that long to accept the charges.
In this heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat thriller, veteran 911 operator Jordan (Halle Berry) takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who has been kidnapped and thrown into the trunk of a madman’s car. But with the clock ticking, Jordan soon realizes she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life and put an end to a serial killer’s haunting rampage.
The $13 million thriller has grossed over $45 million and counting as it nears the end of its theatrical run. That’s good news for Sony’s TriStar and even better for co-producers WWE Studios. That most of the reviews seemed to indicate it was actually a solid little thriller is even better news for viewers.
If you, like me, were amongst those that made the decision to hold off for Redbox rather than rush out to theaters, you’ll only have to wait until June 25th to rent/own The Call on DVD or Blu-ray.
Artwork and further disc details are to be announced.
