New Stoker trailer looks stylishly dark
Stoker, Chan-wook Park's latest film a man known for a number of films including Oldboy (Filmstalker review), Lady Vengeance, I'm a Cyborg, Thirst and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and JSA: Joint Security Area - yes I wrote them in order of well-known-ness - has just been premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and with it comes a new short trailer delivered with stylish editing.
Interestingly the film starring Matthew Goode, Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska has received mixed reviews, some loving it and some not so excited about the film, I will hopefully get to see it in a few weeks at the Glasgow Film Festival, for now this new trailer will have to do me.
The blurb for Stoker goes like this:
After India's father dies, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother. She comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
It's clear to see that these ulterior motives involve murder as the trailer unfolds, but what the true motive is remains to be seen. It looks really interesting and carries a great leading cast list, directed by Chan-wook Park and co-written by Wentworth Miller and Erin Cressida Wilson who also wrote Chloe (Filmstalker review) and Secretary, the names behind the camera are positive too. It would seem that Stoker should be a really good film, shame then there are some not so positive comments coming from the Sundance premiere.
The new trailer for Stoker comes through The Playlist and looks really interesting, especially as it's covered by some strong editing.
Looks good doesn't it?
