Now, approaching the release, Lionsgate is playing up the tongue-in-cheek slasher flick with new artwork.

First posted by AICN, the new poster finds the titular cabin has been turned into an architectural Rubik's Cube. It boasts the new tagline, "You think you know the story."

For all the time it's gone unreleased, not much is known about Cabin in the Woods. Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Brian J. White, Amy Acker, Fran Kranz and Jesse Williams also star in the film.

It also marks one of the first starring stateside vehicle for a then unknown Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in Whedon's upcoming Avengers.

The story follows two white-collar co-workers (Jenkins and Whitford) stranded in the woods while a group of college kids spend the weekend in the mysterious cabin. At some things likely go very, very wrong.

The Cabin in the Woods finally makes it to theaters April 13, 2012.
