After years of waiting due to MGM’s financial fiasco, Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) and Joss Whedon‘s The Cabin in the Woods is finally arriving in theaters next year. And today we have the first trailer. The horror film stars Chris Hemsworth, who will be seen in Whedon’s The Avengers a few months later as Thor, as well as Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly and Fran Kranz. This trailer shows off what looks to be a horror film that has more than a few surprises. There are many elements (including a man controlling it all, presumably Jenkins) that I had no idea were a part of this story. I adored Cloverfield and this looks like a great way to kick off the summer movie season. Check out the trailer below via Yahoo.
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again.
The Cabin in the Woods hits theaters April 13th, 2012.
What do you think of the first trailer? Worth the wait?
