Apple TV+ have sent us the trailer for the new genre-bending thriller Calls. The new nine part series is directed by Fede Álvarez (Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead), that promises to be an auditory and visual bone chilling assault.
Based on the French series of the same name created by Timothée Hochet, which is a groundbreaking, immersive television experience that masterfully uses audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine bone-chilling, short-form stories. Each episode follows a darkly dramatic mystery that unfolds through a series of seemingly average, unconnected phone calls that quickly become surreal as the characters face growingly unsettling experiences.
“Calls” is a groundbreaking, immersive television experience based on the buzzy French series of the same name, masterfully using audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine bone-chilling, short-form stories. Directed by Fede Álvarez (“Don’t Breathe”), each episode follows a darkly dramatic mystery that unfolds through a series of seemingly average, unconnected phone conversations that quickly become surreal as the characters lives are thrown into growing disarray. Featuring Lily Collins, Rosario Dawson, Pedro Pascal, Aubrey Plaza and more, “Calls” proves that the real terror lies in one’s interpretation of what they cannot see on the screen and the unsettling places one’s imagination can take them.
The assembled cast includes Nicholas Braun , Clancy Brown , Lily Collins, Rosario Dawson, Mark Duplass, Karen Gillan, Judy Greer, Paul Walter Hauser, Danny Huston , Nick Jonas , Riley Keough, Joey King , Stephen Lang , Jaeden Martell (Defending Jacob), Paola Nuñez (Bad Boys for Life), Pedro Pascal , Edi Patterson (The Righteous Gemstones), Aubrey Plaza , Danny Pudi (Mythic Quest), Ben Schwartz , Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jennifer Tilly.
Calls Season One will launch globally on Apple TV+ from 19th March.
