Gorgeous New Batch of Photos from Richard Kelly's The Box
Our friends over at JoBlo have just dug up a new batch of photos from Richard Kelly's The Box, which hits theaters in November. I wouldn't normally think of this film being photogenic (at least for scenes that don't contain spoilers), but these photos are just gorgeous. I'm still very excited for this, despite knowing plenty about the story and hearing some early reactions that haven't been all that positive, but I just love Richard Kelly. And I think I'm excited because I know there is some kind of sci-fi aspect as well. Either way, I'm still looking forward to this probably more than anything else left this year, so take a look below!
If you haven't seen it yet, go watch the very first trailer for The Box. Hopefully we'll see more from it soon?
Norma (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden), a suburban couple with a young child, receive a 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 somewhere in the world.
The Box is both written and directed by Richard Kelly, of Donnie Darko and Southland Tales previously. The story is based on Richard Matheson's short story "Button, Button", which was also adapted into a "Twilight Zone" episode. Warner Brothers will debut The Box in theaters everywhere on November 6th.
