Lionsgate and Saban Films have released the first trailer for Stephen King‘s “Cell,” which the bestselling author co-wrote with Adam Alleca.

John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson star in the film, which was directed by Tod Williams. The duo previously starred in an adaptation of King’s thriller “1408.”

The thriller opens at the Boston airport, where Clay (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cellphone 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.

Richard Saperstein, Michael Benaroya, Brian Witten and Shara Kay produced “Cell,” which was executive produced by Cusack, Stephen Hays, Peter Graham, Ben Sachs, Paddy Cullen, Edward Mokhtarian, Armen Aghaeian, Laurence Freed, Tyler Hawes, Brian Pope, Geno Tazioli, Xavier Gens, Marina Grasic and Jan Korbelin.

“Cell” will hit premium VOD on June 10 before its theatrical run starts on July 8.
