The Box poster

04.07.2009

Director Richard Kelly is something of an enigma. His off-beat post-proto-meta flick DONNIE DARKO wasn't the most accessible of films and tanked at the box office, but has since reached cult status of the highest order. SOUTHLAND TALES although ambitious, never really found an audience and with an uber-limited theatrical release last year and mostly negative reviews, it's more than likely that it will simply drift into movie oblivion. It's no surprise then, that most people don't know what to make of Kelly's next film THE BOX. The horror film stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as an unhappy couple that receives a box that will make them millionaires with the push of a button but simultaneously kill someone they don't know. The concept is twisted for sure, and with Kelly's penchant for thought-provoking cinema, we may have a real explicit moral tale on our hands.

With Diaz in the lead, I'm sure the studio is hoping for big box office returns, so it will be interesting to see if Kelly can maintain his vanguard attitude towards directing while appealing to the masses. Check out the poster for THE BOX below and let us know what you think!

I wanna see...

Cameron Diaz's Box. Not the film. She is not a good actress. She should stick with Silent Films.

i know i've seen this premise before on either a twilight zone or outer limits episode. the titular box grants wishes and of course ruins their life (ala "monkey's paw") and they finally use one of their wishes to get rid of it, at which point the box is given to someone else... someone they don't know....

Amen to what Resurrected said. I couldn't believe all the SNL and MADTV pieces of shit to go along with J Timberlake and The Rock to make for such an awkward cast. That movie was fucking terrible.

I won't give this a shot until DVD but I must say, where is the terror in killing someone in the world, one of billions of people, that u dont know? One of which will probably be an asshole too, and this will make u a millionare? Oh.. so... scary... and... twis- ah fuck it, it's stupid.

COOL

I like the poster it's more direct than Donnie or Southland. I hope this film will be less twisted ending and more original for a change. Getting a bit tired of seeing same ol horror flicks.

Yeah uh, not too excited

Darko was alright, but Southland Tales was a massive turd. Rock and have a LOT to make up for and when I saw Jon Lovitz, John Larroquette and all those Mad TV alumni I thought to myself, "Wow, they really cleared the D-list bleachers for this one..."
And WTF was the deal with the Justin Timberlake video halfway through???
