Here’s a friendly reminder that The Box opens across the US today! The sci-fi/thriller stars Cameron Diaz, James Marsden and Frank Langella, and was directed by Donnie Darko‘s Richard Kelly! Be sure to check it out!
Below is a video of Cameron Diaz talking about her experiences while filming The Box. The director, Richard Kelly, is currently MTV Movies special blogger and wrote a post about working with Cameron. Check out a few quotes below, and read the entire blog here. So psyched for the movie!
Cameron is very observant and thoughtful – she thinks long and hard before she makes any important decisions. It was clear that she knew exactly what she was doing every step of the way. She never once complained about a single thing during a long, emotional shoot in sub-arctic blizzard conditions.
I feel fortunate to have worked with both Cameron and Drew, who are consummate professionals — these are two of the most successful and well-adjusted women I know . . . incredibly supportive, kind and appreciative of everyone on the set and around them.
I know I’m biased as the filmmaker behind the movie, but Cameron’s performance in “The Box” is extraordinary. I can’t wait for people to witness her transformation into Norma Lewis.
According to Pajiba, via News in Film, Cameron Diaz is attached to star in What Men Want, a sequel of sorts to 2000’s What Women Want starring Mel Gibson. She reportedly is tentatively set for the lead role while the script is completed. Pete Chiarelli (The Proposal) is writing the screenplay.
Though further details are unknown at this point, it will likely be the original’s premise with a little gender-reversal. Lightning strikes and suddenly Diaz can hear men’s thoughts and understand what they want. How she’ll be able to leave the house without being greeted by a cacophony of “you” and other lewd ideas remains to be seen.
The promotion for The Box is gearing up – and to talk about the movie, Cameron Diaz will appear on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on November 5! Be sure to tune in, and hopefully I’ll have Internet by then (check out an earlier post) and screencaptures and a video will be available the day after!
I’d just like to say I’m sorry for not updating for the last weeks, I simply haven’t been able to access the Internet, and probably won’t until mid-November. Hopefully I’ll be able to get on a computer (like I am now) and update soon. Stay tuned!
The promotion for the thriller/sci fi The Box is starting to gear up, and three brand new TV spots have been released, thanks to TheMovieBox.net (via TrailerAddict). They’re each very good and interesting, and the movie really looks great! I’m so excited to see it, are you? For now, check out the TV spots below.
