Stoker trailer shows more

Stoker.jpgStoker was getting people excited as soon as we knew who the man behind the camera was, Park Chan-wook, the man who brought us Thirst, I'm a Cyborg but that's OK (Filmstalker review), Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (Filmstalker review), Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, JSA: Joint Security Area, oh and of course a film called Oldboy (Filmstalker review).

Park is a superb director and the only fear for this film is what he would deliver when caught up in the Hollywood studio system, a fear that still remains with me but is diminishing with every trailer I see.

This latest trailer for Stoker looks superb and the cast of Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode that we see throughout it seem as though they are delivering dark and achingly powerful performances.

Of course it's only a trailer, it's only a glimpse of what the film is and it can be made to look so many different ways compared to the film itself, but at the same time you can't ignore how dark and twisted the trailer is looking, and I like it.

Here's the blurb for Park Chan-wook's Stoker:

After India's (Wasikowska's) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

Now, here's the Stoker trailer, see what you think and that opening from Kidman is rather good. You can watch it over at Apple Trailers or below through TrailerAddict:
