The Call (trailer)


I’ve been hearing some terrible things about this trailer, so I figured it was time to check it out for myself. And yeah, it pretty much is the worst trailer ever, mostly because it does appear to roll out the entire film in a more complete way than any other spoilerish trailer has ever done before.

The awful bits left over after that are mostly about how this looks like a retread of Cellular, which isn’t a movie that needed to be trod over again.

Most depressing thing? This is from Brad Anderson, who in the past has made some intriguing indie films including Happy Accidents and Session 9 and The Machinist. This is what happens when filmmakers like him go Hollywood.
