Colin Farrell (Minority Report, Daredevil) and Kiefer Sutherland (24) star in PHONE BOOTH, the highly original, fast-paced thriller from Joel Schumacher (Tigerland) - this year’s must-have DVD for fans of gripping, edge-of-seat film entertainment. PHONE BOOTH is out to rent and buy on DVD and video from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment from August 11th 2003.

Stu Shepard (Farrell) is a cocky and smooth talking New York City publicist leading an unethical and self serving existence for whom the compulsion to answer a ringing phone is too great.

Set almost entirely within a New York phone booth, this adrenaline-pumping thriller grabs you immediately - strapping you into an emotional rollercoaster. Each day Stu frequents a phone booth to call his potential girlfriend, so that his wife won’t trace the calls. On one such day he is trapped after being told by a caller – a moralistic serial killer with a sniper rifle – that he’ll be shot dead if he hangs up. Stu must dig deep into his soul to find the strength to attempt to outwit the caller, taking the cat and mouse game to a dangerous level and leading to the riveting and tense conclusion.

Featuring a talented cast of stars including Forest Whitaker (Panic Room, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai), Katie Holmes (Dawson’s Creek, The Wonder Boys), Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black) and with Sutherland providing the ruthless and chilling voice of The Caller, Phone Booth is an example of a skilfully executed and originally conceived film – a powerful tale of honesty, integrity and the fear of facing up to who we really are.

Phone Booth on DVD also features the Director’s audio commentary and a compelling behind-the-scenes ‘Making Of’ featurette. Would you ever innocently answer a ringing phone in a phone box again?
