As expected, The Box looks crazy. If you think it looks too crazy for your tastes, don't write it off just yet. This film is from Richard Kelly, the same dude who gave us Donnie Darko. Though Southland Tales didn't play out as hoped by Kelly-ites around the globe, he's due to score.
The Box Trailer
Based on the short story by Richard Matheson, The Box stars Cameron Diaz as Norma Lewis and James Marsden as Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child who receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, played by Frank Langella, 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 crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.
