After years of waiting and fervent anticipation, it's finally become a reality; Drew Goddard has a new film in theaters.
Despite his near constant involvement with a variety of side projects such as The Martian or Daredevil, the last time that a film both written and directed by Goddard was in theaters was all the way back in 2012, with The Cabin in the Woods.

As strong as the script may be, it would be nothing without great actors to fill those meaty roles and luckily, Goddard has that in excess.
From some of the most well-respected and acclaimed actors of the last few decades to relative up-and-comers, this cast is bursting at the seams with incredible performances. But let's see who really steals the show...
