I'm seriously digging the retro couture pictured here, especially the scarves. It sort of gives the film a scooby-doo dignity, but enough of the eyeballing. We all know Kelly's Donnie Darko, and I think most of us can agree that was a singularly awesome film (the original, not the directors butchery), but his follow-up Southland Tales was a mess. I still hold high hopes for Richard, especially with the story being based on a short by Richard Matheson (yes the guy who wrote I am Legend) and a cast of both Cameron Diaz and James Marsden. You can see one of the stills to the right, including the box, and after the break we have a full synopsis and two more stills!

"The Box is about a suburban couple with a young child who receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, played by Frank Langella, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this 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 in the crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity."
