Though the movie was finished filming in 2009 and originally slated for release in 2010, The Cabin in the Woods is just now giving us a first official trailer.
The movie, which is written and produced by Joss Whedon and written and directed by Drew Goddard, fell victim to MGM’s major financial woes, and like many others it found itself stashed away in the attic, left to gather dust.
But thankfully for all of us, Lionsgate eventually showed up to save the day and set a new release date of April 13, 2012.
You can check out the first trailer for The Cabin in the Woods by continuing on below.
All we really knew about the movie was that it was a horror movie that took place in a cabin out in the middle of the woods, as so many horror movies before it have (hence the amusing generic title). But, after watching the trailer, you’ll see there’s a whole lot more than cliche horror movie events unfolding at this quaint little cabin.
The Cabin in the Woods stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jodelle Ferland, Jesse Williams, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Keith David, Fran Kranz, Kristen Connolly, Brian J. White, and Amy Acker.
