Merrick here...

Not dissimilar to the first trailer we saw back in early December, but a slightly different take.  

CABIN IN THE WOODS is from director Drew Goddard (a writer and producer on LOST, the writer of CLOVERFIELD), who scripted here as did Joss Whedon (who also produces).  It's in theaters 13 April.

    Thanks, Lionsgate Marketing Team ...

    by Sean

    ... for giving away the movie. I know, I know ... research shows that people like to go see what they're familiar with. But just because the U.S. is populated with idiots, doesn't mean you have to give away the main twist in both trailers. Douchebags.

    Will this be a musical like Buffy and Dr Horrible.

    by Tikidonkeypunch

    Is it a coincidence that Dr Horrible was horrible to watch?

  • March 6, 2012, 4:42 p.m. CST

    and this is what, 5 years held back or something?

    wow- it does show absolutely everything.


    i've no need to see it now. well done.

  • I ain't going anywhere near that new trailer. I'm a little sorry I even bothered to look at the one from a couple months ago. Hell we're only a little over a month from this thing being everywhere, so...

    A few things i do not understand...

    by LowDevil

    Joss Whedon, Brett Ratner, the excitement for a film that was done 5 years ago, most talkbackers on this site, remake of 21 jump street, the excitement for Avengers Assemble, and why kFC chicken pies are so delicious.

  • March 6, 2012, 5:29 p.m. CST

    Ha, it's now spoiled!!!

    by performingmonkey

    The whole reason people were having kittens over this at the early screenings was the unveiling of the twist which is ruined within seconds in this trailer!

  • March 6, 2012, 6:01 p.m. CST

    Doesn't anyone know how to market a film anymore?

    by relayer

    I once had an interest in seeing this; now I don't. Stupid John Carter trailers, and now this...

  • March 6, 2012, 6:13 p.m. CST

    looks like that buffy episode.

    by vulturess

    hollywood horror sucks.

    The lambs have come to the killing floor.

    by Bob

    I still snigger every time I hear it. It's sooo cheesy. The whole movie looks just as dumb. Yeah, i know all about the "twist" ending. I have to say, it's just as bad as an M. Night Shamalamadingdong "twist" ending. If not worse. As terrible as the Evil Dead remake is sounding, this thankfully wasn't it. That would have just made me mad.

  • March 6, 2012, 7:34 p.m. CST

    why does everyone assume that is the "twist" of the movie??

    by la te ral us

    from what i've read, thats not the case

  • March 6, 2012, 7:44 p.m. CST

    Believe me, it hasn't been spoiled.

    by Happyfat73

    The "twist" that people are complaining that the trailer reveals – ie a secret government agency using technology to kill teenagers in a cabin – is revealed in the opening of the film. It's not a twist - it's the set-up.</p> </p> I just love reading the know-it-alls claiming they know what it's all about, when patently, they don't.

    regarding twist

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    I read the script, there is NO twist in the movie. there are surprises, but there isnt anything in it that changes the entire aspect of the film (ie Usual Suspects or Sixth Sense) so, I repeat, no twists... ps: there is a twist... buffy shows up at the end...

  • March 6, 2012, 9:03 p.m. CST

    happyfat73 is correct

    by Playkins

    The twist hasn't been spoiled. It's a good one.

    The big ending (read at your own risk)

    by ImperialMarchFace

    Spoilers obviously. The end of the movie is the hot girl and stoner guy descending in an elevator, which is seen in the trailer, to a warehouse kind of thing where every possible monster/threatening thing is kept. What the kids in the cabin do decides which monster they will get. The kids in this case get zombie-ish former house residents. And yes, the whole thing is put on as a sacrifice/entertainment for super old underground gods, that are never seen unless the script changed. Once the girl and guy are down there they accidentally release all the monsters and they run amock killing security guards and stuff. At one point a unicorn impales a guy. I think reading the script actually made me more excited for this, because the ending should be pretty nuts.

  • March 6, 2012, 10:34 p.m. CST

    Read the script for this years ago...

    by The_Guy_Who_Invented_Coca_Cola

    ...when it was supposedly cancelled. Everything in the trailers so far corresponds at least vaguely to what I remember in the script. No reason to assume there have been massive changes. And no, the cat isn't out of the bag. The trailer barely spoils the first act.

    Not gonna watch the new trailer

    by Adam Jones

    Last trailer seemed to show too much. I ain't watching this one or any more. Want to be surprised when I go see this movie. Trailers should entice you to go, not show you the entire movie in a minute and a half. ********Spoiler Alert********** From the previous trailer, I still wish I didn't see that bird fly into the electronic wall in the woods or all those troops running around in commando gear and guns. ********Spoiler Alert********** Too much info to soon ruins the fun.

  • ....CLOWN SHOES!!! But at least Whedons working more at his level here.

  • March 7, 2012, 8:44 a.m. CST

    Is it a prequel for 'The Cube'?

    by Rtobert

    re: Ending SPOILER

    by buggerbugger

    A factory of death set up to kill people for the entertainment of ancient gods? So, basically, the screenwriter had just been watching 'The Greatest Show in the Galaxy', a Doctor Who story from the late '80s, when a flash of "inspiration" for a new script hit him out of nowhere?
