One of the biggest mystery surrounding the Joss Whedon-produced “The Cabin in the Woods” was what it was really about. It definitely didn’t sound like your traditional slasher movie with a bunch of horny kids in the woods getting stalked by a deranged masked killer. And the first trailer gave away some things, but not everything.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW
Looks like Whedon and company have finally decided to give away more about their film. This new, revealing trailer spells out a lot of “Cabin’s” plot. The cabin of the title appears to be part of some secret, high-tech sci-fi-y hunting ground where guys (probably those rich 1%’ers) hunt people for sport. You know, another version of The Most Dangerous Game, i.e. man. Of course, there might be a twist or two thrown in there. I wouldn’t put it past Whedon to pull a fast one.
Mind you, I’m just guessing on the above, so I could be completely off the mark.
Starring Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Amy Acker, and directed by Drew Goddard. The film will make its debut at SXSW this week, then hit theaters everywhere a month after that on April 13th.
