New Poster and Status Update on Richard Kelly's The Box
04.06.09 by REELZ
Richard Kelly's The Box, which is now slated to release on October 30, 2009, has a new poster and a MySpace update from the director. The new poster, which has a wide blood red swath bisceting Cameron Diaz's face, highlights the blood price around which the film is based.
Adapted from the short story "Button, Button" by Richard Matheson of I Am Legend fame, it's the tale of a young couple who receive a mysterious box that promises to bestow $1 million, at the mere cost of some random stranger's life. The story received an earlier, somewhat campy adaption, in the New Twilight Zone.
On his MySpace page, director Richard Kelly says, among other things, that the movie is completely finished, takes place in Virginia in 1976, and will include a whole lot of visual effects that required eight-months of post production. "It will be," he promises, "his most personal film ever."
