Richard Kelly, director of Donnie Darko (which was great) and Southland Tales (which was not), is finally releasing his newest movie, THE BOX. Based (loosely) on the short story “Mirror, Mirror,” by Richard Matheson, which was also a Twilight Zone episode, in THE BOX,
Norma and Arthur Lewis are a suburban couple with a young child who receive an anonymous gift bearing fatal and irrevocable consequences. A simple wooden box, it 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…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 face the true nature of their humanity.
Check out the trailer after the jump!
The Box is due out in theaters October 30th!
