    I bought this years ago and was wondering how much it was probably worth.

    Doesn't look like there is even a site up.

    Are you asking if the domain name is worth anything?

    As far as I can tell it's not a website, it's a domain.

    In my humble opinion, unless you have a premium domain (ie "movies.com") then you can't ask more than a few bucks for a domain. At least you can't expect someone to pay that.

    You should try to at least do something with that domain, build a website and then flip it for a few hundred.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah, I bought the site then Warner Bros. made a movie called "The Box" and their domain is thebox-movie.com. I was just curious if it was worth anything on those basis.

    Oh, that movie. Pretty terrible movie really. I wouldn't say it's worth anything on that basis. The movie really wasn't all that popular. You would need a domain name for a very hyped up movie (in the lines of avatar, etc.) to make money off solely the domain.

    Since it's a pretty generic name (I didn't even realize it was linked to that specific movie) I would take yeahsure's advice and try to make some sort of movie site out of it.
