First Trailer for Joss Whedon’s The Cabin in the Woods

On the heels of last week’s intriguing teaser poster, Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for The Cabin in the Woods, the much-anticipated (and long-delayed) horror movie from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard.

Shot in 2009, Chris Hemsworth, Jesse Williams, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison and Fran Kranz as five friends who head off to the titular remote cabin in the woods, where we’re told “bad things happen.” As the teaser hints, and the studio insists, this isn’t a garden-variety slasher movie: “If you think you know this story, think again.”

The film, which also stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Amy Acker, opens April 13.

    Ok, that really wasn’t what I was expecting.  I guess I have NO idea what this movie is about, as it looks like Topher and Thor meet Persons Unknown come Resident Evil.  Yeah …

    But Joss and Drew!!!!

    I second your thoughts. Not sure what to make of this. I’ll go one more and say it looks like Resident Evil meets Eyes Wide Shut come Eagle Eye.

    Also looks like that movie where Robert DeNiro’s(I think it was him) character thought he was going insane (he was going insane or just freaked out cuz weird stuff kept happening/can’t remember), but it was all a big hoax put on by his wife for his birthday present.

    Yeah that Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman movie where they get involved with some odd swinger’s group/cult. I think that was the plot. Also not sure if I got the name of the movie right either. LOL
