John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson team up in a new apocalyptic movie that will certainly do for cell phones what Psycho did for showers.
Cell, based on Stephen King's 2006 novel of the same name, follows a struggling graphic artist, Clay (Cusack), who witnesses a disaster at the Boston airport when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cell phone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay joins forces with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous "phoners" as the city descends into madness.
With six billion cell phones in the world, the movie asks the question: what could happen if they controlled us?
"If we're going to survive this, people are going to die," Jackson says in the trailer. "Good always conquers evil. I believe that."
Cell is available on Ultra VOD on June 10 and in theaters from Saban Films and Lionsgate on July 8.
