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.
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".
