Opening on November 6th is writer/director Richard Kelly’s “The Box”. The movie is set around a deceptively simple moral dilemma. An average couple is offered an opportunity to get themselves out of financial difficulty: a million dollars, in exchange for the knowledge that their acceptance of this gift will result in the death of one person somewhere in the world – someone they don’t know. The big question is, “What will they do?” But writer/director Richard Kelly is also asking, “What would you do?”
While many of the various giveaway’s we’ve run on Collider have been cool, one of the prizes for “The Box” might be the best yet. That’s because we’ve been given a replica of the box used in the movie! According to the people providing the items, it’s retail value is two hundred dollars. Needless to say, this is the grand prize. So if you’re curious what else we have to giveaway, hit the jump and find out how to enter:
As I said, we’ve been provided with some very cool “The Box” swag.
While in previous giveaway’s I’ve just had you email us with your name and address, for this one I’m making it a bit different. If you want to win any of the tees, hats or key chains, all you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and say THE BOX Giveaway in the headline.
But if you want to win the replica of “The Box” prop, you’ll need to become a fan of Collider on Facebook and then email your name and address like I said in the previous paragraph.
When the contest ends, I’ll randomly pick a winner from the entries and if you’re a fan of ours on Facebook, you’ll win the replica. If you’re not a fan, you’ll win one of the other items up for grabs and then I’ll pick again until someone meets the criteria.
And if you’re wondering how to become a fan of Collider on Facebook, you can click here or the bottom of this contest article has a Facebook widget with a link.
The giveaway ends November 14th at noon Pacific Time and is only open to residents of the United States. Also, only one entry per person is allowed.
Here’s what I’ve been provided plus images. Good luck:
1 Replica of ‘the box’ prop! – ARV $200
3 YOU ARE THE EXPERIMENT Tees – ARV $20 ea.
3 YOU ARE THE EXPERIMENT Hats – ARV $18 ea.
3 “The Box” Key Chains – ARV $5 ea.

What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don’t know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences?
The year is 1976. Norma Lewis (CAMERON DIAZ) is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur (JAMES MARSDEN), is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son…until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep (FRANK LANGELLA) and presents them with a life-altering proposition: the box.
With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face a momentous moral dilemma. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.
“The Box” is based upon the classic short story “Button, Button” by Richard Matheson. It was written for the screen and directed by Richard Kelly, whose 2001 sci-fi mystery thriller “Donnie Darko,” a cult classic, earned a Grand Jury Prize nomination at the Sundance Film Festival. “Donnie Darko” went on to screen at film festivals around the world and brought Kelly Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best First Feature and Best First Screenplay.
“The Box” stars Cameron Diaz (“The Holiday”), James Marsden (“X-Men: The Last Stand”), Oscar® nominee Frank Langella (“Frost/Nixon”), James Rebhorn (“The International”) and Holmes Osborne (television’s “Invasion.”)
It was produced by Sean McKittrick, Richard Kelly and Dan Lin, with Sue Baden-Powell, Ted Field, Paris Kasidokostas Latsis, Terry Dougas and Edward H. Hamm Jr. serving as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Steven Poster (“Stuart Little 2″), production designer Alexander Hammond (“Flightplan”), editor Sam Bauer (“Donnie Darko”) and costume designer April Ferry (“Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”). Original music is provided by Win Butler, Régine Chassagne and Owen Pallett.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Radar Pictures and Media Rights Capital, “The Box.” The film will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. “The Box” has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for thematic elements, some violence and disturbing images.
