First Trailer for Stephen King Adaptation 'Cell' Starring John Cusack
"If we're gunna survive, people are gunna die." Saban Films has released an official trailer for a film called Cell, starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. This is an adaptation of the best-selling Stephen King novel of the same name, about an electronic signal sent to people's cell phones that turns them into "rabid killers". Another angry zombie movie, but this time it's our cell phones that have turned everyone into zombies, how apt. Despite the fact this is a Stephen King movie starring Cusack & Jackson, it doesn't actually look that good. Maybe I'm just tired of the everyone-turns-into-a-zombie movies. What about you?
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Tod Williams's Cell, direct from YouTube:
When a strange signal pulsates through all cell phone networks worldwide, it starts a murderous epidemic of epic proportions when users become bloodthirsty creatures, and a group of people in New England are among the survivors to deal with the ensuing chaos after. Cell is directed by filmmaker Tod Williams, of the films Paranormal Activity 2, The Door in the Floor and The Adventures of Sebastian Cole previously. The screenplay is written by Stephen King and Adam Alleca, adapted from Stephen King's novel of the same name. Saban Films will release Cell in theaters on July 8th, with an early VOD release starting June 20th.
