This is a historical mystery, sci-fi movie.

These two characters are each in possession of a box. When they meet and get together they each share something from their boxes respectively.

There will need to be multiple Scooby-Doo endings.

       Shirley, given the ambiguity, it should be P and/or A?

       The appearance of Skinner can only lead to complications.

       [+] but the obvious plot is that they don't know each other until a shipping or coatcheck error has them switch boxes, hilarity ensuing when opened.

       Lucy is Not going to like this...
wait, that was Schroder.
  

       Pandora lets all the evils out of her box, only to find a dead cat at the bottom?

       Somehow Pandora could be persuaded to place her box inside Herr Schrödinger's such that after some period of time, all the worlds evils are both free, and contained at the same time. It turns out this has been the case for longer than we imagine.

       Tagline in deep voice, interspersed with dialogue from the movie.   

       THIS WINTER...   

       "It's a box God damn it, get your own!"   

       WILL CURIOSITY...   

       "That's what I'm trying to tell you: everything's in there!"   

       KILL...   

       "Erwin, please, I have to know..."   

       THE CAT?   

       "Meow!"

       hehe - I love all these annos!!

       Since "All the evils and miseries of the world" are neatly embodied in the entity known as the domestic cat, it is irrelevan which box Pandora opens, shirley?   

       In the original story, the last thing left in Pandora's box was "hope". To parallel this, presumably Erwin's box will (in addition to the radioactive source, detector, and bottle of poisin) contain a high-power air rifle.

       Can we just settle for a cat-launcher?
xandram, Mar 15 2013
  

       We can.

       //bottle of poisin   

       Poisson? There's a French (spits on the ground) cat in there?

       which reminds me of an old joke;
"Pandora isn't very good at wrestling... but you aughta see her box."
  

       What a splendid idea. I only wish I'd have seen it sooner. +

       I don't know, I think this idea is primarily about pandoring to the audience.
theircompetitor, Mar 16 2013
  

       Who's to say there even is an audience?
