Based on creator Timothée Hochet’s French series of the same name, Calls is a new show that tells the mysterious story of a group of strangers who’s lives are thrown into disarray, in the lead-up to an apocalyptic event.
Told through real-life audio sources and minimal visuals, Calls stars Pedro Pascal, Rosario Dawson, Lily Collins, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Aubrey Plaza.
I’ll give this a chance to find out if it actually works. Because something tells me I might miss seeing the person/people on at least one side of the conversation.
Remember Tom Hardy’s very impressive Locke (2013); when we could see his character but only hear the people he was speaking to on the phone; yet it worked perfectly? Perhaps this too will surprise us all and exceed all expectations.
Directed by Fede Álvarez; additional key cast includes Nick Jonas, Jennifer Tilly, Ben Schwartz, Jaeden Martell, Riley Keough and Joey King.
Calls Release Dates: March 19th, Apple TV+
