Some people have suggested this trailer reveals a big twist in The Cabin In The Woods, but the truth is more that it shows this isn’t just you typical creepy house horror tale and there’s a lot more to it than that – as you’d expect from writer/producer Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard (who wrote Cloverfield). The film’s been severely delayed due to MGM bankruptcy, but it’ll finally see the lit of day next April. In the movie, a group of friends go to a remote place in the woods, where things quickly turn terrifiying, in a film that’s keen to turn the horror genre inside-out.
The Joss Whedon written and produced Cabin In The Woods hasn’t had much luck. Shot over two years ago, it got trapped in the debacle that surrounded MGM’s bankruptcy (along with the likes of the Red Dawn remake) and so has taken a ridiculously long time to get to cinemas. However now Lionsgate has taken over distribution and an April 13th, 2012 release has been set.
AICN has debuted a superb new poster for the movie, which you can see about.
The film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth (it was shot pre-Thor, which should give you some idea how long it’s been waiting to emerge from the MGM mire), Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. As the title suggests it sees a group of young people heading to an isolated cabin, but things don’t go too well for them once they get there.
