Here it is folks. The official trailer for Richard Kelly's new movie The Box. After the critical derision that swamped Southland Tales (albeit very acclaimed in my eyes to the heralds of Hoberman, Lee, and Taubin – who else do you need?), I was wondering where Kelly would go next. Apparently back to death and the end of the world is the likely answer. I think this trailer is fascinating for a few reasons, despite the music overkill at the end. I love the hazy cinematography on top of all those "beautiful people." Perhaps it will end up being relatively commercial compared to Kelly's previous features, but lets hope it takes a heavier slant to the strange where his previous works have had their greatest successes. I'm in for it. How about you?
And here is the rest of it.
