New Trailer for Halle Berry's 911 Movie 'The Call'

This just looks way too contrived for my taste

A new trailer for the contrived 911 thriller The Call, starring Halle Berry and directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), has arrived and I'm really having a hard time believing this thing can turn out any good.

In it, Berry plays a 911 operator who takes a call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who has just been abducted and soon learns the kidnapper is someone from her past. And, as the trailer suggests, Berry ultimately goes out looking for the guy.

The film arrives on March 15 and I don't expect it to be around for too long. I was honestly surprised when I read the comments on my post featuring the poster and people saying the trailer looked good. Really?

    I saw a TV spot for this last night and there was a line that went "You're just a 911 Operator. What are you gonna do?". Ugh. I don't have high hopes for this one either.

    Im actually surprised, I think it looks pretty good...based on the description I was expecting a PG-13 looking movie, but Im actually betting this will be R based on the trailer, looks like it might be fairly intense.

    Not the trailer I saw. This one makes me want to see it. It IS a comedy, right? That's what this is having me believe. Yeah, I need some laughs

    I really enjoyed the first trailer but this second on doesn't look that great. I
    Starting to have second thoughts about this one..

    I just saw the full trailer on you-tube and I can't wait to see this!

    The intensity and action is going to be a nail biter forsure.

    Going to get a group together to make it a date movie night.
