Cell Official Trailer #1 John Cusack Samuel L Jackson

cell Cell is what Americans call a mobile phone (also see the 2004 Kim Basinger/Chris Evans thriller Cellular, although, rather, don’t).

A strange signal pulsates through all mobile (cell) phone networks worldwide, and starts a murderous epidemic of epic proportions when users become bloodthirsty creatures (so, it turns into a zombie movie), and a group of people in New England are among the survivors to deal with the ensuing chaos after.

Directed by Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2), with a screenplay from Adam Alleca that’s based on the Stephen King novel, the two big leads are John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson, plus Isabelle Fuhrman, Stacy Keach, Lloyd Kaufman, Owen Teague, Catherine Dyer and Mandi Christine Kerr.

Cell (ahem, mobile phone) is released in the US on July 8th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date. It looks rather like a straight-to-DVD clunker.
