Halle Berry takes ‘The Call’

Cast and guests pack the Arclight for the Sony pic's preem

A crowded turnout of journos and attendees at Tuesday’s premiere of Tristar’s “The Call” had even star Halle Berry surprised.

“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.
