As mentioned yesterday, Richard Kelly's cult hit Donnie Darko has managed to infect many a college campus movie night with its particular brand of "that shit's f***ed up, man." But that's not enough for him. How can he get to those few remaining hold-outs that "don't get it"? What to do about the dorm rooms that still prefer a Big Lebowski? (That's still big, right?) Kelly finally has the answer: get Arcade Fire to score his next film. Surely marrying those college chart toppers and more of his signature "f***ed up shit" will make his newest thriller the talk of the quad. It should also help that it's called The Box. You know what that means, braw.
