First trailer arrives for Halle Berry thriller The Call

And you know what? It actually doesn't look half bad. 

Granted, Halle Berry and co-star Abigail Breslin are talented actors. Berry's won an Academy Award and Breslin's been nominated. And director Brad Anderson is the bomb when it comes horror and thrillers, what with his Session 9 and The Machinist.

The Call follows a 911 operator who ends up dealing with a killer from her past after a young girl calls the center, kidnapped in the trunk of a car. 

Working against the film is the plot has elements of Taken and Buried, and the trailer shows every beat we'll see in the movie. Still, there's talent involved, which gives me hope that The Call will be worth the watch when it opens March 15.
