The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas.
Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. However, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world, someone they don't know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity. Written by

The license plates show 7 characters. In Virginia, in 1976, the auto license plates had larger letters/numbers & were always 3 letters with 3 numbers, also with a month sticker on the upper left with the year sticker in the upper right of the plate. Some of the cars in this movie show 7 number/letter combinations in a smaller "font" and with only a year sticker. See more »
in this film James Marsden and Cameron Diaz play a couple barely making ends meet who receive a box on their doorstep.they then receive a visit from a mysterious stranger(Frank Langella)who tells them if if they push the button the on the box,two things will happen.first, someone they don't know will die.second they will receive a million dollars in cash.of course,there is much more going on that that.this is certainly an interesting and original premise as far as i know.it's based on a short story by Richard Matheson,called,Button,Button.the movie certainly is thought provoking,and makes you think.i thought it was very well done.for me,The Box is an 8/10
