The Call Up arrives in cinemas on Friday 20th May, before heading to DVD and digital download on Monday 23rd May – and to celebrate, we’re giving away a copy of the film and a Google Cardboard headset.
The feature debut of director Charles Barker, the film follows a group of elite online gamers, who each receive a mysterious invitation to trial a state-of-the-art virtual reality video game. Arriving at the test site, the group step into hi-tech gear and prepare for a revolutionary, next-level gaming experience that brings modern warfare to life with frightening realism. But what starts out like a dream encounter with cutting edge technology quickly takes a turn for the sinister…
The film is from the producers of the excellent indie sci-fi The Machine and stars Ali Cook (Kajaki), Parker Sawyers (Zero Dark Thirty, Monsters: Dark Continent) and Morfydd Clark (Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Love & Friendship).
To celebrate the movie’s release, we’re giving you the chance to get your own taste of virtual reality with a free Google Cardboard headset. Now compatible with both YouTube’s iOS and Android apps, the easy-to-assemble headset allows you to slot your phone into a slot in front of your eyes and see 360-degree content in full VR mode. It’s a great little alternative to expensive headsets such as Oculus Rift – and, to make sure you’re aware of the dangers of such cutting edge tech, we’re even chucking in a free copy of The Call Up on DVD to boot.
To win, simply answer the following question:
What are Google Cardboard headsets made from?
A. Cardboard B. Vibranium C. Unicorns
