Richard Kelly's "The Box" Finally Gets A Trailer

Pop Quiz! You’re significant other just got shit canned from their job and you are now faced with having to figure out how to pay bills that you already can’t afford. A guy shows up at your door with a wooden box that contains a button. If you push that button you’ll be given one millions dollars but someone you’ve never met somewhere will die. Would you push the button? Of course you would, I’d slam that thing before he even showed me the money. Done, movie over.

Somehow though “Donnie Darko” director Richard Kelly managed to turn this into a two hour film staring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden and Frank Langella. The movie is called “The Box” and after being delayed more then a year it finally has a release date and trailer.

Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don't know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

I was never a fan of “Donnie Darko” but I haven't completely written this one off yet. Some of the visuals do look pretty interesting and Frank Langella is always great at playing a creepy bastard. “The Box” will hit theaters on October 30th, opposite Lionsgate's "Saw VI".
