Having done some decent business at the US box office earlier this year, Halle Berry serial killer thriller The Call hits UK cinemas on September 20.

Berry stars as 911 call centre operator Jordan, who decides to take a back seat in her career when a call ends in tragedy.

But, some time later, Jordan is forced out of her training role and back into the frontline when a young girl (Abigail Breslin) is kidnapped by a killer, with only Jordan’s smarts standing between her and an untimely end.

The film is directed by Brad Anderson, who has the superlative ‘The Machinist’ on his resume, as well as TV work on the likes of Fringe and Boardwalk Empire, so there is plenty of talent involved.

To mark the release, here’s a clip from the film, as well as an extremely brief snippet with Berry, in which she talks about her reasons for taking the role.
