Think of all the things you use your cell phone for. We communicate using it. We pay bills using it. We work using it. Now think of the last time you weren’t connected at the hip with your phone. Today we rely on this small device to help us function, but what happens if it starts to change the way we function? The first trailer for Cell shows us how our cell phones could really turn us into the zombies we look like.
Cell is based on the 2006 Stephen King Novel of the same name that warns how mindless these tools can make us.

Jackson) and teenager Alice Maxwell (Isabelle Fuhrman) on a journey to escape New England and the crumbling civilization.
