Exclusive: New Poster For The Box
UK quad artwork unveiled

28 October 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

The latest poster for Richard Kelly's new film The Box is here, and it surely offers the best reason yet to watch it on its December 4 release. No, not the effectively creepy artwork or the look of terror on Cameron Diaz' face: it is, of course, the quote from Empire's beloved leader Mark Dinning that tops the page.

But seriously, folks, this one looks more Donnie Darko than Southland Tales. Diaz and James Marsden play a married couple who are given a box and told that, if they press a button on top, they'll get $1 million but someone they don't know will die. Eeek! Moral dilemna.

If you need more, you can check out the UK official site over here, or dig up the Richard "I Am Legend" Matheson short story on which it's based.

...that's a hideous poster. Cameron looks like a fat, over-photoshopped Olsen twin. More

I am just hoping Diaz doesn't ruin the whole thing. I can't stand her. More

The box poster
It looks kind of lame to me. The picture is kind of drab and doesn't seem to stand out from the crowd. Hopefully the movie will be better than the artwork More
