CELL (2016) Movie Trailer: John Cusack Tries to Survive Stephen King-Zombie War

Samuel L. Jackson John Cusack Isabelle Fuhrman Cell

Cell Trailer. Tod WilliamsCell (2016) movie trailer stars Samuel L. Jackson, John Cusack, Isabelle Fuhrman, Stacy Keach, and Lloyd Kaufman. Cell‘s plot synopsis: based on the novel by Stephen King, “When a strange signal pulsates through all cell phone networks worldwide, it starts a murderous epidemic of epic proportions when users become bloodthirsty creatures, and a group of people in New England are among the survivors [that have] to deal with the ensuing chaos [afterward].”

I really liked the airport segment of this trailer but the rest reminded me of World War Z. Actually, the film seems like World War Z-lite. Going into a war zone to rescue your family or a family member can be understood but the logistics of going should also be understood as well as the logistics of the journey back. From what is shown in this trailer, graphic artist Clay Riddell (John Cusack) flies into danger without a real thought of the hell that he will bring down upon himself and the minefield he will have to run back through, even if he is successful.

That being said, the basic concept of this film – cell phone making people herd-like, killing machines – is intriguing.

Cell also stars Owen Teague, Joshua Mikel, Catherine Dyer, Mandi Christine Kerr, Griffin Freeman, Wilbur Fitzgerald, Michael Beasley, Rey Hernandez, E. Roger Mitchell, and Mark Ashworth.
