“Richard Kelly’s new film The Box finished shooting four plus months ago, and the first test screening is supposedly later this week. So we can probably expect to see the movie in theaters in October, November or December, right? Wrong.

According to Collider, Warner Bros is planning a 2009 release for the Donnie Darko director’s ney’s w sci-fi film. Not only that, but the date they are eyeing is over a year away – September 11th 2009. Why are they interested in a date so far away? And why September 11th? Does the date have anything to do with the plot? Not that I’m aware of. Of course, everything could change if the test screening scores are through the roof.”

This does seem a bit strange. But if you think about it, Richard Kelly’s films haven’t exactly been huge box office successes. It’s not like he’s had any huge failures (at least not that I’m aware of), but his biggest hit was Donnie Darko which nobody had even heard of until it hit dvd. So my best guess is that Warner Bros wants to find an opening weekend with little competition, so they’re gonna sit back and see how things go. But what do I know, that’s just a guess.

Not being a huge fan of Kelly’s films, I nevertheless see the potential … welcome to the Lamb!
