trailer break: ‘The Box’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Two questions: What’s with the phony Southern accents? (It really doesn’t suit Cameron Diaz.) And is it just me, or does James Marsden simply not look right without that Cyclops eyewear?

From the director of Donnie Darko? Okay, fair enough. But let us not forget that Richard Kelly is also the director of Southland Tales, one of the most woefully misgotten movies of recent vintage.

The Box opens in the U.S. on November 6, and in the U.K. on December 4.

Hey Twilight Zone Fate Fodder? When will you ever learn NOT to take those too-good-to-be-true deals?! Goddamned monkey paw.

Yet another episode of The Twilight Zone receives an unnecessary full feature.

Wow, Diaz’s southern accent is hilarious!

Glad I wasn’t the only one to immediately think this has already been done better on The Twilight Zone.

Originally a short story by Richard Matheson called Button, Button.

This movie is going to be very very bad.

That is unintentionally hilarious, from start to finish. More and more, I feel like Donnie Darko (which I love) was a fluke. Even his director’s cut of it was terrible.

The first thing that I had heard about this movie was that Diaz had given away the ending at a Comic Con panel. D’oh!

Yeah, there’s a problem here; I’ve never visited America in my life, and even I can tell that Cameron Diaz’s accent in this is just awful.
