It only took a couple of years, but the first trailer for the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’ Cell has finally been released. You won't look at your cell phone the same way again.
Ever since it was announced back in November 2013 that
Nick Fury Samuel L. Jackson would be reuniting with John Cusack on another Stephen King project —if you guys will recall, Jackson and Cusack previously worked together on Stephen King’s 2007 haunted-hotel-room story, 1408 — we've been chomping at the bit to see anything about the movie. Heck, I think some of us even started to believe the whole thing was an urban myth. Well, now we have proof that the movie is real.
Based on Stephen King’s titular apocalyptic novel, Cell is directed by Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) and also stars Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games) and Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy). King himself wrote the screenplay alongside Adam Alleca (The Last House on the Left). Here’s a synopsis:
When a mysterious cell phone signal is broadcast across the network and turns the population into mindless animals, struggling graphic artist Clay Riddell (Cusack) bands together with a small group of fellow survivors to trek across a decimated New England to seek answers and reunite with his son.
What do you think of the trailer? Does it make you want to lock away that cell phone under six feet of concrete? Cell will first be released on Ultra VOD on June 10, before seeing a theatrical and VOD release on July 8.
