The Box features an inherently fascinating premise ? would you accept a million dollars if you knew this meant a stranger would die? Adapting an episode of the Twilight Zone by legendary sci-fi thriller author Richard Matheson (I Am Legend), Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly cultivates an atmosphere of palpable unease via a deliberately paced, lushly visual evocation of 70s paranoia in this must see film.

A happy, young couple, Norma (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden) receive a simple wooden box as a gift. The box is accompanied by a mysterious stranger (Frank Langella) who delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. However, pressing the 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 faced with a moral dilemma that could have dire consequences.

Set for DVD release by Icon Home Entertainment on 19 April 2010, The Box stars Hollywood A-listers Cameron Diaz (The Holiday, Shrek, Charlie?s Angels), James Marsden (X Men, 27 Dresses, Enchanted) and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon). With a plot that is filled with unanswered questions and sinister dilemmas, The Box will grab you and not let you go until the final outcome is compellingly revealed.
