By Rich Heldenfels Published: May 6, 2013

The official word: Academy Award® winner Halle Berry (Best Actress, Monster’s Ball, 2001) stars as a veteran 911 operator who takes a life-altering call from a kidnapped teenage girl, played by  Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin (Best Supporting Actress, Little Miss Sunshine, 2006), in THE CALL, debuting on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD with UltraViolet™ June 25th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. When a terrified kidnap victim (Breslin) calls 911 from the trunk of a madman’s car, Jordan (Berry) realizes she must confront a killer from her past to put an end to the serial killer’s haunting rampage.  THE CALL also stars Morris Chestnut (Identity Thief, Think Like A Man), Michael Imperioli (The Lovely Bones, TV’s “The Sopranos”), Michael Eklund (TV’s “Alcatraz”) and WWE star David Otunga.


The Blu-ray Combo Pack exclusively features an alternate ending, deleted and extended scenes, Michael Eklund’s Audition Tape, and two all-new featurettes taking viewers behind the scenes for set tours and stunt breakdowns.  Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD come with a making-of featurette, as well as commentary by Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin and filmmakers.
