With the release of ‘Hardcore Henry’ this week and with a few FPS touches in ‘Grimsby’ a few weeks ago it seems the movie world has gone video game FPS crazy. ‘The Call Up’ is a new movie about an elite set of online gamers who are invited to attend the launch of a new style of virtual reality video game. All looks great until they realise the game is more reality than virtual.
Directed and written by Charles Barker and starring Morfydd Clark, Christopher Obi and Max Deacon, this movie has got potential cult classic written all over it. However, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out if it’s as good as it looks as the movie isn’t out until May 20th.
The Call Up is in UK cinemas on May 20th
