Writer/director Richard Kelly’s new movie “The Box” arrives in theaters this October. The film asks the question what if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don’t know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences? Sounds cool, doesn’t it.

So at this year’s Comic-Con, I managed to get an extended interview with Richard Kelly and we talked about “The Box”, the movies he producing like “World’s Greatest Dad”, Comic-Con, “Avatar”, his next script, 3D, the state of the film industry, and a lot more. It’s a great interview and one worth watching. Take a look after the jump:
