Gracing the red carpet premiere were director Brad Anderson, Halle Berry, Evie Thompson, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut, Cory Scarborough, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Patricia Rae, Michael Eklund, Roma Maffia, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Rosanna Arquette and many more.
In "The Call," when veteran 911 operator Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) receives a call from a girl who has just been abducted, she soon realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life.
Leading lady of "The Call," Halle Berry, was initially set to star in the film when it was scheduled to be directed by Joel Schumacher ("Batman Forever"). When Schumacher dropped out, so did Berry. But eventually Berry returned to star in this thriller.
"The Call" debuted in Chicago on Feb. 28. The film is slated to be release in U.S. theaters on Friday, March 15 and will battle with box office dollars with science fiction flick "Upside Down," the comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" and the drama "Ginger & Rosa."
"The Call" is rated PG R for violence, disturbing content and some language and has a run-time of 1 hour and 35 minutes.

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cell phones and no texting, please don't talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
