Jackson (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction) and Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games).

Check out the Cell trailer below, along with the poster in the gallery!
When a mysterious cell phone signal is broadcast across the network and turns the population into mindless animals, struggling graphic artist Clay Riddell (Cusack) bands together with a small group of fellow survivors to trek across a decimated New England to seek answers and reunite with his son.
“I enjoyed working on ‘Cell’ and love the way it turned out,” said Stephen King. “Kip Williams has made a scary and thoroughly entertaining movie. But you may want to put your cell phone in the freezer after seeing it.”
Cell was fully financed by Benaroya Pictures and produced by Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company. it will be released on Ultra VOD June 10 and then theatrically and on VOD July 8.
