Lionsgate's First Teaser Poster for 'The Cabin in the Woods' Revealed
You think you know the story. You think you know the poster. But you don't! Lionsgate has unveiled their first teaser poster via AICN for The Cabin in the Woods, the long-delayed horror project directed by Whedon protege Drew Goddard. We've been waiting to see this for a while, and got some teaser posters with horror taglines from MGM years ago. But they sold it to Lionsgate, who is finally putting it out next April, and I can't wait! "Drew and Joss love the poster and the design. They like that it makes you wonder what is going to happen in The Cabin in the Woods." I'm curious too, as that is one twisted, strange cabin.
Produced by Whedon and directed by Goddard, the movie stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.
If you think you know this story, think again. A mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out. A group of five friends going on a quiet cabin retreat scratch the surface of something so massive and horrific that they can only begin to fathom what might possibly be going on just as time quickly runs out.
The Cabin in the Woods is the feature directorial debut of Whedon protege Drew Goddard, screenwriter of Cloverfield and Robopocalypse, as well as work on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Alias" and "Lost" for J.J. Abrams. The original screenplay was co-written by Joss Whedon ("Buffy", "Angel", "Firefly", Serenity, The Avengers) & Drew Goddard. This was originally shot in early 2009, but is just now, finally, getting a release from Lionsgate. Cabin in the Woods is scheduled to hit theaters on April 13th, 2012 next spring. You in?
