First Look: "The Box"

Here’s our first look at James Marsden and Cameron Diaz in The Box. USA Today has the first photos from the upcoming sci-fi thriller, and they also spoke with director Richard Kelly. Kelly calls The Box his "first grown-up film" and also say sthat he hoped "to make a more mainstream popcorn film" this time around, (his two previous films were the experimental Donnie Darko and Southland Tales).

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.
