Are you ready for THE BOX! It might not sound scary at first, but don’t worry, it is. From Richard Kelly, the writer and director of Donnie Darko, comes another eerie film about a couple put in an extraordinary circumstance. The film stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as a normal suburban husband and wife who get a visit from a man (Frank Langella) who gives them a wooden box.

Check out the trailer below…

Synopsis: 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.

Normally I would toss this aside as another run-of-the-mill horror film, but Kelly has been able to deliver great things in the past, so I’m eager to see what he’s come up with. What about you?

Does this film look like a one of a kind film like Donnie Darko? Or another cliched horror film?

The Box hits theatres on October 30th.
