Cabin in the Woods: What We Know

If you're reading this, odds are you are aware to one degree or another of Joss Whedon's upcoming horror movie, The Cabin in the Woods.

This is the first-ever community on LiveJournal created for The Cabin in the Woods, and if you're reading this before 2011, you probably have an interest in scouring the internet for any detail on the movie you can. The official site isn't exactly forthcoming, beyond the fact that it is about a cabin in the woods.

But first, the standard welcome spiel -- be nice to each other. Put spoilers, fic, large images, and NSFW content behind a cut (with the proper warnings when needed). And keep the rants about it being converted to 3D to a minimum; we'd all rather be watching it now than next January, there's no need to repeat it, and you can still head to a non-3D theater to watch it when it's finally released.

Now On to the spoilers!

Basic info from Wikipedia:

(I know, it seems like a space-eater, but solid data on this film is a minimum)

Real spoilers, direct from Joss Whedon himself:
In order to protect the story from spoilerization, we've been sending out our OWN misinformation, including fake sides for the actors, fake summeries [sic], different names… So there's gonna be a lot of 'information' leaked that will lead to excited speculation about things you will not see. Sorry. But here's some stuff you CAN look forward to, my word on it:

1) A person will have an emotion.

2) two people speaking, or "dialogue", may occur.

3) A bunch of different people will play the part of Bob Dylan.

Hope that clears everything up. More updates soon!

Wow. This is a little out of date. Here's hoping other people stumble across this community and we can get a fandom going.

Now I feel humiliated; I fully intended to keep this up, and didn't even remember to post for the release.

No humiliation! I'm just glad to see there's a community at all!

. . . also, wow, it's really sinking in how delayed this movie was.
