Phone zombies run rampage in first trailer for Stephen King's Cell

Just yesterday we heard that some cities are installing traffic lights in pavements in a bid to help phone zombies, and today we're offered a further glimpse into the epidemic from the mind of Stephen King.

It's the first trailer for his new movie Cell, starring John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson, about a world in which cell phones have taken control and created more braindead zombies than your average morning commute.

Based on King's own 2006 novel, and directed by Paranormal Activity 2's Tod ‘Kip’ Williams, this looks like it'll be another terrifying tale from the The Master of Horror when it's released on August 26th.

Check out the first trailer now:
