In Se7en Brad Pitt asked “What’s in the box?” Now The Box is headed to theaters and this one is not filled with Gwyneth Paltrow’s head. This one has a button, and a past.
The Box is based on the short story Button, Button, written by Richard Matheson. So if you don’t have 1 hours and 55 minutes to burn at the theater, here’s a 20 minute version from The Twilight Zone.
Part 1 of Button, Button
Part 2 of Button, Button
But if you’re still thinking, “Twenty minute for a story about a box with one button? Are you kidding? I fell asleep 10 minutes into The Piano, and that thing had 88 keys.” Here’s a similar story about a one button box call Black Button, and it’s only 7 minutes.
A new movie, not a so much new idea.
Here’s my favorite box video, and it’s even named What’s in the Box. I have no idea what it’s about or what it’s for. (Here’s a YouTube link, the one below is better, but not iPhone friendly.)
But if you do go see The Box, let me know what’s going on with Frank Langella’s face.
