First poster for Richard Kelly’s The Box

Posted by LiveFor on April 4, 2009

Richard Kelly is the guy who made the excellent Donnie Darko and the not so special Southland Tales. As you may or may not know he is making a film called The Box. It is based on on the short story “Button, Button” by screenwriter and novelist Richard Matheson (Duel, I am Legend). Quiet Earth dug up this first poster for it.

Norma Lewis (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden) are 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 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 cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

    I think that the film looks interesting. It would, however be a lot shorter if I was the principle character. In the words of Mark E Smith “Do I only get to kill one?” xx
