Halle Berry is literally 'phoning it in' in the latest trailer for The Call, a new thriller from The Machinist director Brad Anderson. In this edgy drama, Berry plays a 911 operator who must stay on the line with a young woman who has been kidnapped in order to save her life. Watch as Halle introduces the clip, and then hang onto your seat, its going to be a bumpy ride (for the abductee anyway, Halle Berry seems to stay seated until the third act).

Director Brad Anderson may not be a name you're familiar with, but if you're a fan of cinema that cuts against the grain, you will have likely come across his work. Brad Anderson broke onto the scene with the 2001 thriller Session 9. He followed that up in wonderful fashion with 2004's The Machinist and the tragically underrated 2008 masterpiece Transsiberian. In between films, the director keeps busy on the small screen, directing episodes of shows such as The Shield, The Wire, Fringe, Treme, and Boardwalk Empire.
Brad Anderson's latest big screen project is Vanishing on 7th Street, which will be released in theaters on February 18. This thriller takes place in Detroit and follows a group of survivors who realize that a widespread power outage is really something much more sinister. I recently had the chance to speak with this talented director over the phone. Here's what he had to say.Read More

A twisted adaptation of Robinson Crusoe, the story's protagonist, Robert Maitland, a wealthy architect, finds himself stranded in a manmade 'island' (a section of fenced-off wasteland in the middle of a motorway intersection) between the Westway and M4 Motorway in West London, forced to survive on only what is in his crashed Jaguar and what he is able to find. As his condition degrades, it soon becomes difficult to determine whether Maitland is finding sanity or watching his mind fall apart as he finds companions on the island and eventually decides to remain there and forsake his former life.Read More
