Joey King, Nick Jonas & Lily Collins Star in Apple's 'Calls' - Check Out the Trailer!

The trailer for Calls is here!

Joey King, Nick Jonas and Lily Collins star in the Apple TV+ upcoming series.

The superstar-filled cast also includes Nicholas Braun, Clancy Brown, Rosario Dawson, Mark Duplass, Karen Gillan, Judy Greer, Paul Walter Hauser, Danny Huston, Riley Keough, Stephen Lang, Jaeden Martell, Paola Nuñez, Pedro Pascal, Edi Patterson, Aubrey Plaza, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jennifer Tilly.

Calls is described as a groundbreaking, immersive television experience based on the buzzy French series of the same name, masterfully using audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine bone-chilling, short-form stories.

The series is directed by Fede Álvarez, and each episode follows a darkly dramatic mystery that unfolds through a series of seemingly average, unconnected phone conversations that quickly become surreal as the characters lives are thrown into growing disarray.

Calls Season 1 will premiere on March 19 on AppleTV+ – check out the trailer right now!

Joey King also has something very exciting coming up – and it involves her sister!

Ben Schwartz Says Playing 'Sonic' In Film Is 'Dream Come True'!

Ben Schwartz stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (January 28) and discussed his exciting role as the voice of Sonic in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film!

“It’s crazy because I played it in 1991, I was a huge fan of the games. Then when they were making this film and they asked if I would do it, it’s like a dream come true because now I get to be the voice,” the 38-year-old actor told Jimmy about taking the lead role.

“Just like how your son was introduced to it then, maybe some people watch it now and I’ll be the way that they are getting introduced to the character, it’s crazy. It blows my mind,” Ben continued in reference to how Kimmel‘s son was into Sonic when he was younger.

“I’m spreading the Sonic love on Valentine’s Day,” Ben said in reference to the film’s February 14 release date.
