Halle Berry's 'The Call' Is Now Rated 'R' By The MPAA

Interesting... the trailer has PG13 written all over it! But the MPAA has marked the film with an R rating, for "violence, disturbing content and some language."

So maybe this means we'll get a red-band trailer before the film opens???

Brad Anderson directs Halle BerryAbigail Breslin and Morris Chestnut (as Halle's cop lover) in the thriller The Call (previously titled The Hive).

The WWE Studios and Troika Pictures jointly production is described as follows:

Set against the backdrop of a 911 call center, this fast-paced suspense pic will find 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. Berry's character must face her own fears in order to save the teenage girl from a disturbed killer. The kidnapping plays out in real time as the pair work together to track down the killer. 

Written by Rich D’Ovidio (Exit Wounds, Thir13en Ghosts), The Call opens on March 15.

A brand new trailer - about a minute shorter than the first, with more tension - has been released, and it's embedded below.

    Who cares if its rated r? the movie looks horrible! How many times is hollywood going to make the same movie? Taken, Cellular, Phone Booth. ZZZ seen it all before. Halle is not lead actor material this will bomb at the box office and that looks like a mop on her head!

    LOL. I once wrote I never got the Halle Berry hype and they accused me of being you. Because there can't possibly be two people in the world with the same unpopular opinion.
