“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 including Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut and Michael Eklund.
The thesp had nothing but praise for the film and for her character, a 911 operator turned vigilante.
“I love the character,” Berry said. “Rarely do I find roles to play that are this meaty and empowering, so I desperately wanted to do this movie.”
Breslin said that her character’s abduction and entrapment in a car trunk by no means deterred her from taking the part.
“You have to want to play a character for such a long period of time,” Breslin said, before adding, “It was pretty rough being trapped in a truck for so long, but it was worth it to do this movie.”
Sony’s Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal and guests migrated to the Arclight lounge for a low-key reception afterwards.
