This marks the second adaptation of a Stephen King novel in the news this week, and another recent acquisition for Saban Films after Rob Zombie’s 31. Now that a U.S. distributor is in place, we have an official trailer and one-sheet ahead of the film’s release.  While the film marks a reunion between King, John Cusack, and Samuel L. Jackson, the trailer indicates a much smaller budget than 2007’s 1408. Frankly, the one-sheet looks unimpressive. Fans of the novel, what do you think of the trailer?

Directed by Tod Williams, Cell stars John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Stacy Keach, Owen Teague and Isabelle Fuhrman. The screenplay was co-written by Stephen King himself.

Cell will be released on Ultra VOD (putting a film on-demand before a theatrical run) on June 10th, 2016 before arriving in theaters on July 8th, 2016.

Stephen King’s best-selling novel is brought to terrifying life in this mind-blowing thriller starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. At the Boston airport, Clay (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cellphone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous “phoners” as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.
