Joss Whedon & Drew Goddard’s THE CABIN IN THE WOODS To Open SXSW 2012
SXSW announced this week THE CABIN IN THE WOODS as their opening night, world premiere for SXSW 2012. There is a lot of hype surrounding this long-awaited genre film, hype that we hope is true. According to some lucky Austinites who had the great fortune of seeing the film during this year’s Butt-numb-a-thon, the hype is justified. Little to nothing has has been revealed about the plot, but the general idea comes across in the title. I would comment on the trailer, but I have chosen not to watch it… at least, for as long as I possibly can avoid spoiling anything at all for myself. My recommendation to you… watch if you wish, but at your own risk. I’ve been told the film’s even better without seeing the trailer. The poster however, pictured below, is pretty darn cool, though!
THE CABIN IN THE WOODS was co-written by Joss Whedon (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) and Drew Goddard (CLOVERFIELD, LOST), and is Goddard’s directorial debut. The 2012 SXSW Film Conference and Festival will take place March 9 – 17, 2012 in Austin, Texas.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth (THOR), Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins (LET ME IN) and Bradley Whitford (THE WEST WING).
THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, the upcoming “horror movie to end all horror movies” that will turn the genre on its head, will be in theaters everywhere April 13th, 2012. Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again.
