Apple TV + has released a trippy and terrifying trailer for its auditory mystery series Calls, that comes from Do not breathe director Fede Alvarez.
Based on the French series of the same name from the creator Timothy rattle, Calls it is described as an immersive television experience that uses audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine short “chilling” stories.
Each episode of the genre-bending thriller will follow a dark mystery that unfolds through a series of seemingly average and disconnected phone calls that quickly turn surreal as the characters face increasingly unsettling experiences.
The all-star cast that will bring these spooky conversations to life includes Pedro Pascal, Nick Jonas, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Aubrey Plaza, Lily Collins, Karen gillan Y Rosario Dawson, plus Mark Duplass, Ben schwartz, Danny Pudi |, Paul walter hauser, Judy Greer, Riley Keough, Nicolas Braun, Clancy Brown, Joey king, Danny Huston, Jaeden martell, Edi patterson, Paola Nuñez Y Jennifer Tilly. And don’t worry, Álvarez’s Do not breathe star Stephen Lang will also accompany me on the trip, although I am surprised that the headmaster’s lucky charm Jane levy is not involved. Maybe next season, should Apple renew the show …
Calls is an Apple Original series produced in association with Canal +, as well as with Studiocanal and Bad Hombre. A French version of the series will premiere on Canal + in select markets where the channel is available, and in select markets in Latin America, the series will debut under the title Calls with custom graphics in Spanish.
I am very curious about Calls, which could be very difficult to watch or absolutely exciting. The concept reminds me of The blame, in which a conflicting 911 operator receives a call from a woman claiming to have been abducted. That movie didn’t work out for me at all, but if it was a short film, or in the case of Calls, a short-form series, it very well could have. I’m eager to know how long these episodes are because I don’t know how long I can look at a screensaver, no matter how engaging the story is. I mean, isn’t that what podcasts are for?
For now, I’ll give Álvarez the benefit of the doubt here, as I liked his Evil Dead remake and a little loved Do not breathe, which was positively crooked, and holds up well on a second (and third) clock. It’s a shame your Lisbeth Salander movie The girl in the cobweb it was a disaster, because he was on his way to an important task.
Instead, he was more recently hired to direct re-filming at Chaos walking, about which I have not heard encouraging things, although it is certainly none of your business. I like it Ron Howard in OnlySometimes you just have to be a pro and step up when a studio needs a helping hand. I trust her gender instincts though (she’s producing the new Leatherface movie) and I look forward to seeing her Calls, which will premiere its entire nine-episode first season on March 19 on Apple TV +.
Take a look at the trailer below and try to keep an open mind … as well as open ears. Please forgive me for that.
