Apparently "The Box" Is Awful

11/23/2009 01:25:00 AM

The Box was filmed in Boston just over two years ago (here). It was one of the first of MANY movies that have subsequently been filmed in our lovely city. Did anyone happen to see it when it came out in theaters a week or two ago? I haven't yet, but apparently the critics hated it.

CAMERON DIAZ's new film THE BOX has been voted one of the worst films of all time by moviegoers - just days after its U.S. release.

The thriller, based on Richard Matheson' 1970 short story Button, Button, has been panned by film buffs in America, with officials at CinemaScore, who monitor fan reaction to movies, giving the flop an F rating - the lowest score possible.

Company boss Ed Mintz says, "People really thought this was a stinker." Mintz rates the film as the fourth least popular this decade, behind 2006 horror Bug, Wolf Creek in 2005 and Darkness, which came out in 2002.

I'll probably still end up watching it at some point to see if I can recognize any of the locations that they filmed at. But I guess this one will have to wait until video. Sorry Cameron, hopefully Knight & Day will be better received.
