Official Trailer for Indie Sci-Fi ‘The Call Up’

Charles Barker's Sci-Fi

Vertical Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for indie sci-fi The Call Up, a relatively low-budget British film from writer/director Charles Barker.

The action/thriller, of sorts, is about a virtual reality ‘shooter’ game that turns out to be more than just a simple, harmless video game.

The charm of The Call Up was the casting of mostly unknown actors such as Max Deacon (Into the Storm), Morfydd Clark (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Ali Cook (Kilo Two Bravo) and Christopher Obi (Snow White and the Huntsman).

The Call Up opens in limited US theaters and on VOD starting June 24th. Check out the official trailer and poster below (via First Showing).

The suits look kind of cheesy to be honest.
