“I’m just shocked that this many people showed up,” Berry said on the ArcLight red carpet, where she was joined by helmer Brad Anderson and co-stars Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut and Michael Eklund.

The thesp had nothing but praise for her character, a 911 operator turned vigilante, “Rarely do I find roles to play that are this meaty and empowering, so I desperately wanted to do this movie,” she said.

Breslin said her character’s abduction and entrapment in a car trunk by no means deterred her from taking the part. “It was pretty rough being trapped in a trunk for so long, but it was worth it to do this movie,” Breslin said.

Post-screening, Sony’s Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal and guests migrated to the Arclight lounge.
