The Cabin In The Woods Poster Finally Lands!

Happy news, folks–we’ve been following The Cabin In The Woods for some time now, and the news has been a little bleak up until now. But we’ve got two things that will turn it all around for us: a release date and a new poster.

The Cabin In The Woods follow takes us out to exactly where the title says we’re going: a cabin. And it’s in, not surprisingly, the woods. But this is where the obvious stuff falls away as the young people find themselves stranded out in said woods, staying in said cabin, when things start going bad wrong and bodies start hitting the forest floor.

Sadly, we don’t know much else for sure as yet, but we do know that Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, and Fran Kranz all serve as terror hotties in this one, which is pretty good in its own right. And the best part is, we finally know when this one is going to hit, and it’s sooner than you may think. Check this out: it’s going to hit theaters on Friday the 13th, in April of 2012. I’m looking very much forward to this one hitting.

Lots of Terror Hotties In The Cabin In The Woods

(Kristen Connolly)

Cabin in the Woods is making plenty buzz, and not all of it legitimate.  But MGM has just released the official word on who’s involved in this sucker, and the names are pretty nice.  We’ve got Kristen Connolly and Anna Hutchison along with a whole brood of attractive twenty-somethings off to the woods.

Though there’s not a whole lot of information being put out about this, which has only just begun shooting, the word from writer Joss Whedon (yeah, that Joss Whedon) is that we should expect “bad things to happen to teenagers in the woods”.  That and it’s got a thirty million dollar budget, which is pretty chunky for a horror flick.  Especially when you match it up against Whedon’s earlier Serenity, which had forty million dollars to work with.

I find myself dubious on this one–I smell calamity on the wind already and we’ve just barely fired up the cameras.  Never mind that Joss Whedon hasn’t exactly been up to snuff since his Buffy days were behind him, especially in the horror department (just ask the dozen people who actually watch Dollhouse).  So I’m not looking for great things out of the Whedonverse on this run.  Thankfully, though, with a terror hottie presence, a movie is never really that bad.
