Sci-Fi action film The Call Up tells the story of a group of elite online gamers.
The gamers are called upon to test out a new state-of-the-art virtual reality game. As the guns begin to fire though, these pro-gamers discover that their simulated fight for life, is very much real.
Hollywood action sci-fi The Call Up, written and directed by Charles Barker, was filmed partially in Birmingham, in a location that was kept a secret during production. Producers of the film went on to publicly praise Birmingham as a potential filming location for Hollywood films in the future.
Shot over the course of a 6 week period in Birmingham, The Call Up makes use of a variety of city centre locations including the underground car park at Broadway Plaza, and the No. 11 tower block at the entrance to Brindley Place.
