Cabin in the Woods Trailer

"Do we want to go down?" Lionsgate has finally debuted the first teaser trailer, via Yahoo, for The Cabin in the Woods, the long-lost horror film created by Joss Whedon & Drew Goddard that was shot in '09 and has been in the can waiting to be released ever since. The cast of doomed kids in this movie includes Chris Hemsworth, looking fairly young, Jesse Williams, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison and stoner Fran Kranz, with Richard Jenkins in there somewhere, but he's not in the trailer. We've been hearing about this for a while, so how does it look? Quite awesome, I must say, I'm very curious. Enter now!

Watch the first trailer for Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods, via Yahoo:

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?

I have been incredibly excited for this to come out ever since it was announced (huge fan of Joss here) but this was NOTHING like what I was expecting. And I'm even more excited to finally see it now.

that moment when your typical horror movie trailer shows eagles crashing into forcefields

I was thinking, "Oh, no, not more poop from Lionsgate... what the hell?!"

JL on Dec 6, 2011


Holy crap that looks amazing. I hope that elevator ends up in the first 'Cube' Lionsgate did tease us about bringing those Movies back. 

Jon Chamberlain on Dec 5, 2011


My thoughts exactly, definitely looks like Cube!

peloquin on Dec 5, 2011


I was hoping dinosaurs...*pout* Hey Billington I saw Jenkins-er-or the back of his head at least. I'd recognize that tonsure anywhere!

Xerxexx on Dec 5, 2011


Intense!!! Might actually be one of the first Actually scary films to come out in a LONG time!

Luke Banham on Dec 5, 2011


uhh dude, Insidious

Zade on Dec 5, 2011


Insidious fell apart in the 3rd act.

Xerxexx on Dec 5, 2011


Yeah, it fell apart so hard it gave me the giggles.

JL on Dec 6, 2011


Insidious fell apart in the opening credits.

The scariest part for me was the guy pacing outside the bedroom window and the part where Dalton's brother says he doesn't like how Dalton walks around at night...the rest was meh.

Xerxexx on Dec 6, 2011

Seems like Evil Dead meets Saw meets Cube meets The Hills Have Eyes meets American Pie. In other words...Awesome.

Junkstop15 on Dec 5, 2011

Kk on Dec 5, 2011


Sorry, you're retarded.

Hannibalcaine on Dec 5, 2011


Yeah, what in the hell is going on?  Honestly went into this wanting to not like it (don't ask why), and I came out wanting to know more.  Looks like a fun ride,  can't wait! Scared that future trailers may tell us too much.  I think I'll limit myself from here on out.

Mike P. on Dec 5, 2011


Oofa, I thought I was interested in this film until seeing the trailer. I was expecting a low budget horror film not some over the top effects-riddled big budget mess of a movie, which may or may not feature Rob freaking Zombie on the soundtrack.

norm on Dec 5, 2011


Trailer showed WAAAAAAAAY too much, you should have put up a warning Alex 🙂 But it does look like a fun ride, sorta "Evil Dead Theme Park-ish" ? 🙂

David Banner on Dec 5, 2011


"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." OK, Billington? You really need to read this. The book's very good, too.

Dominic Barlow on Dec 5, 2011


i liked Tucker and Dale vs Evil so much that i dont think there can be any other "cabin in the woods movie" for me. but of course i will still be seeing this

Anonymous on Dec 5, 2011


i felt the trailer might've given away a bit too much. 

Unravelme on Dec 5, 2011


looks like every stereotypical cabin-woods horror film and they tried to add some sci-fi into the mix.  not at all intrigued

Ryanbrowne88 on Dec 5, 2011


"You think you know the story" LOL, love these marketing guys. They make such assumptions. How do I know the story yet?

Deathstar on Dec 5, 2011


Ummm...fucking br00tal

BATMAN on Dec 5, 2011


Looks freakn awesome. Love new twists on the horror genre. Can't wait to see it.

sv7 on Dec 5, 2011


i smell 5 sequels.

Phantomrockcity on Dec 5, 2011


"You think you know the story" Errm, yeah. Kinda.  Script reviews for this have been freely available for ages. And if the film is how they describe, we're looking at one seriously wacked-out film.

sleepykid on Dec 6, 2011


That. Just. Sold. The. Hell. Out. Of. Itself. HOLYSHIT! That looks exciting. I'm so fucking in. I hope it rocks as much as that trailer seemed to imply.

Johnny Neat on Dec 6, 2011


P.s. I forgot to mention the taste of them having the Cube's vibe in it a bit.

Johnny Neat on Dec 6, 2011


sweet. What the hell is this movie going to be? Can't wait.

grimjob on Dec 6, 2011


when is someone gonna make a kick ass scary bigfoot movie?!?

Steven R McQueen on Dec 6, 2011

Jazfdcw on Dec 11, 2011

Sagelll on Dec 7, 2011

LW on Dec 9, 2011
