Halle Berry used to be in several big budget movies every year, but several years ago, the actress cut back a little, likely to spend time with her young daughter, Nahla. Recently, Berry really got back into the game with The Call, a mid-level budget thriller that did better than expected at the box office, pulling in over $50 million on a $13 million dollar budget. If you haven’t caught the film, you’ll be able to very soon: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing The Call to Blu-ray and DVD on June 25.

The Call follows Berry as a 911 operator with a rad hairdo who encounters a horrifying phone call that leads to the death of a young woman Berry’s character, Jordan, is unable to save. Several years later, the 911 operator yet again becomes embroiled in a mystery and this time around, she’s determined that another young woman will not suffer. Berry’s played a variety of female personalities and characters in the past, but her role as a startled woman who still plows forward with fortitude is a good one.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is putting together a set that is jam-packed with bonus features, at least if buyers shell out for a Blu-ray copy of the film. While DVD purchasers will get the audio commentary and the “Making of” featurette, the funkier extras, including deleted scenes and the set tour featurette, will only be available with Blu-ray copies. You can pre-order the set over at Amazon or check out the full list of bonus features, below.
