Been waiting for this one for a while. The feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s excellent technology gone amok tale THE CELL is heading our way via VOD and limited theatrical run on July 8th – with a handful of us getting a chance to check it out on “ultra VOD” on June 10th.
But tonight we can all share in this first clip from the film. It’s a long one – and it’s pretty bat shit crazy.
Samuel L. Jackson, John Cusack, and Isabelle Fuhrman all star and Tod Williams directs. The storyline is as follows:
Stephen King’s best-selling novel is brought to terrifying life in this mind-blowing thriller starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. At the Boston airport, Clay (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cellphone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous “phoners” as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.
Is it just me or is that a cameo by Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman in that clip? Pretty sure that’s him.
Yet another reason to love this one.
Liking what I’m seeing!
