It’s been a long road to adapt the Stephen King novel for CELL into a movie. At one point, Eli Roth was attached to direct, various cast members came and went through the years. But then finally, the film went before the cameras in 2014 with John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson in the leads. (Their first collaboration since 1408, another King adaptation.) Tod Williams, who also directed PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2, is at the helm.
After an extended period of wondering when we’d get to see the movie, this morning, Lionsgate and Saban Films unleashed the official trailer and poster, along with the release dates. Have a look below:
CELL hits Ultra VOD on June 10th, followed by a limited theatrical & VOD release on July 8th. Full synopsis and poster is below.
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 cell phone 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.
