Just after I stop receiving his updates on Twitter, writer-director Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) used it to share with the world the official one sheet for The Box, his new genre-bending thriller that stars Cameron Diaz, Frank Langella and James Marsden. The poster is the same as the previous teaser, only it now features a few new “floating heads” – and really, is Diaz’s name still that powerful that the poster needs to be all about her? Eh. Warner Bros. will release the adaptation of Richard Matheson’s short story “Button, Button” in theaters on October 30.
A simple wooden box promises to deliver its owner $1 million with the press of a button. However, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world.
