I’m not sure where it came from, but the boys over at Twitch Film managed to snag the first picture from the new Richard (Donnie Darko, Southland Tales) film, The Box, as well as the official plot synopsis.
The story is probably well-known to you by now, but just in case, it goes a little something like this; The gripping story of a desperate couple, Norma (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis, who are faced with a terrible dilemma when a mysterious glass box turns up at their door. If they press the button inside the box, they’ll get enough money to save their ailing son, but in exchange, someone, somewhere in the world will die. When the temptation to save their beloved son becomes too much to bear, Norma pushes the button. Immediately, a gunshot rings out somewhere nearby. Consumed with guilt. Norma must do everything in her power to solve a murder she has knowingly caused.
Sounds suitably freaky and moral question-raising, no? The Box recently wrapped shooting so expect to see more and more from in the coming months.
Ponder who could create such a box in the Dread Central forums!
