Twisted Poster & Beautiful Promo Video for Park Chan-wook's 'Stoker'
Yesterday a surprisingly artistic digital exclusive teaser poster was unveiled for The Wolverine (be sure to check out the interesting chat with Hugh Jackman and James Mangold as well). Now another great poster has come along for Stoker, the ominous thriller from Oldboy director Park Chan-wook. So far the domestic and international trailers have been brilliant, and this is a film that looks like a true original, twisted and strange. The poster seems to echo those sentiments with the illustrated tangles of a vine, or maybe more accurately, a twisted family tree. Are there hints hidden in the poster? Most likely, yes, but we'll let you do the digging. In addition, we also have a beautiful promo video with some haunting music as well.
Here's the first poster for Park Chan-wook's Stoker from Empire:
And here's the hauntingly beautiful promo video, also from Empire:
After India's (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole 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. Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Vengeance Trilogy) directs Stoker from a screenplay by actor Wentworth Miller going as Ted Foulke. Fox Searchlight is releasing Stoker in theaters March 1st, 2013 next spring.
