Heads bash, teeth gnash, and fists flail when a deadly cell phone signal overtakes an airport in the new clip from Cell, starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, and co-written by Stephen King (based on his 2006 novel of the same name).

Saban Films and Lionsgate will release Cell on Ultra VOD on June 10th, followed by a theatrical and VOD release on July 8th:

“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 cell phone 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.”

Based on King’s unflinchingly violent 2006 novel of the same name, Cell was directed by Paranormal Activity 2’s Tod Williams from a screenplay by King and Adam Alleca (2009’s The Last House on the Left). In addition to Cusack and Jackson, the film also stars Isabelle Fuhrman, Owen Teague, and Stacy Keach.
