Trailer for Richard Kelly’s ‘The Box’ Now Online

diaz-marsden-the-boxWriter/Director Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko is one of our favorite movies here at The Flickcast. Its mix of humor, sci-fi, horror, a six foot time travelling rabbit named Frank and Patrick Swayze make it a great movie to watch and ponder. Now, Kelly is back with a new film called The Box, based on the Richard Matheson short story Button, Button.

In case you’re not familier, The Box concerns a couple (Cameron Diaz and James Marsden) visited by a stranger (Frank Langela) with a question for them. Will they take a million dollars to press a button? What’s the catch? If they press the button, they get the money but someone they don’t know will die.

The question and what follows causes the couple to come to terms with their own lives, morals and the very fabric of society. Its a great concept that should be, at the very least, interesting when filtered through the prism of Kelly’s vision.

Check out the first trailer for the film after the jump. The Box opens October 30.

    That’s just the marketing people trying to invoke a mood for the trailer. Often the filmmakers don’t have anything to do with it.

    As good as this trailer is, why is the theme from “Saw” playing at the end?
