If they're going to push it back that far they might as well push it back a few more months and take advantage of the post-Avengers "From Joss Whedon" marketing opportunity.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

I think they chose that date because there isn't really anything significant (at least in potential blockbusters) that is out on that weekend. April 12 is when "Titanic 3D" is coming out as well as Luc Besson's "Lockout" (which could be hit or miss).

Remember the year we're talking about here too. Next year is pretty much going to be "The Year of the Blockbusters". Once summer hits all the way through to December there is a major movie coming out. They want to at least try to make a few million on this movie. I think April was pretty smart after thinking about it.

Besides which Joss just co-wrote the script with Drew Goddard, Drew directed the film.I don't predict a high box office intake for it. Chris Hemsworth is the star of the film so with his status now after "Thor" and the pre-hype of "Avengers" it's gonna be interesting to see how this does.

This press release has quotes from both Whedon and Goddard. The normal "we're so happy, Lionsgate is so awesome" type of talk you'd expect.

I still don't think I will actually believe this film is coming out until I'm sitting in a movie theater and the end credits have started.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

Yeah that does look pretty cool. Almost feel like the trailer gave away too much, but I guess if it looked like just another standard horror flick, no one would want to see it.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

Damn! Looks great, but I almost wish I hadn't watched that trailer. I'm sure it would be fun to go into the theater expecting a standard backwoods slasher, not knowing about all the crazyness.
Kind of like watching From Dusk Til Dawn before you know about the vampires, maybe.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

After watching the trailer, I'm afraid I must paraphrase young Picard from the TNG ep. "Rascals":

I need to see this movie. I need to see it now. Now! Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!

....April 13th is good, too, of course.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

The poster is much better than the trailer. I'm gonna wait and see the reviews on this one, because it really doesn't look that much better than the Group of Friends+Wrong Gas Station and Vacancy mixed together.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

The trailer only hints at the magnitude of the film's twist. I'm kind of confused as to how someone can like a poster over a trailer better...and use that as a measure if they will see the film or not. I get not liking the trailer and waiting though.

Some more clips from the film.

Here is Cinameblend's review...four and a half stars, which is as high as I've seen Katy rate a flick in a while.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

CHUD and Bloody-Disgusting both gave rave reviews to Cabin in the Woods. My interest is piqued a little now.

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

Check it out. Cabin in the Woods is getting some great reviews at RottenTomatoes. At the moment it has 20 positive and only 2 negative.

I've read a few of the reviews, and the consensus seems to be that it starts out seeming like a very cliche slasher movie with stock characters... and then it cleverly subverts all the cliches and defies all expectations.

"The idea is to set up a movie we've seen a hundred times before, and then to rearrange it into something new and deliriously satisfying." -- Eric D. Snider

"Not since Scream has a horror movie subverted the expectations that accompany the genre to such wicked effect as The Cabin in the Woods." -- Peter Debruge

"You'll feel like horror is revitalized, like its importance is more obvious than ever. That might be Cabin's greatest achievement, reminding us why we love and need this genre." -- Devin Faraci

Re: "Cabin in the Woods" Pushed Back Again

A friend of mine saw it at a screening and loved it. I guess a review and discussion thread is going to have to be made for it next weekend. A part of me still can't believe it is finally coming out lol.
