Sony Home Video has released the Halle Berry thriller The Call, on DVD and Blu-ray.
Brad Anderson directed, with Abigail Breslin and Morris Chestnut co-starring.
The WWE Studios and Troika Pictures joint production is set against the backdrop of a 911 call center, with Berry playing a 911 emergency operator who takes a call from a teenage girl (Breslin) who has been abducted and carried away in the trunk of a car.
Written by Rich D’Ovidio (Exit Wounds, Thir13en Ghosts), the $13 million film opened in theaters on March 15, and went on to gross over $51 million, which is actually pretty good considering how poorly it was reviewed.
As for extra features, both the DVD and Blu-ray contain a commentary track and an extensive making-of feature. The Blu-ray adds an alternate ending, deleted and extended scenes, Michael Eklund’s audition tape, a set tour of the call center “The Hive” and the killer’s lair, and a featurette on the movie’s stunts.
An alternate ending huh? I’m curious to see how different it is from the ending we all saw at the theater, when the film was out. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t seen the film yet. But if anyone does purchase the Blu-ray, please let us know how this alternate ending plays out. Although I’m sure it’ll turn up on YouTube eventually.
