The two reasons I'm psyched to see The Box are its director, Richard Kelly, and its leading man, James Marsden. So of course the poster (via) looks like this:
Okay, so I always end up liking Cameron Diaz in movies despite myself, but when I'm picking a movie to watch she is not any sort of thing that's drawing me in.
But then, the fact that Fast & Furious made 72 million dollars this weekend seems like a message from an alternate universe to me - an alternate universe of horrors - so I understand the fact that my point of view and the mainstream audience point of view aren't always so much aligned. And Richard Kelly needs a damn successful movie here. So I get it.
Still, I wish the poster even mentioned Kelly or Marsden. I thought we'd gotten past Marsden being a nobody at this point, anyway? Hello, Enchanted and Hairspray! He's like popular and shit. Dude can't catch a damn break.
Then I remember he looks at this in the mirror every day:
And I feel much less sorry for him.
