Watch: Nicole Kidman Loses Her Kids in Aussie 'Strangerland' Trailer
Early next year, we'll see Nicole Kidman get a little evil by kidnapping the talking bear Paddington, and on the complete other end of the spectrum, there's Strangerland, a haunting thriller about a woman whose teenage kids go missing on the eve of a massive dust storm in the small Australian desert town of Nathgari. As red dust and darkness covers the town, the locals, including police officer David Rae (Hugo Weaving) try to help, but it soon becomes apparent that something terrible may have happened to them, and that's when fingers are pointed, and the situation escalates pretty quickly. This looks like a pretty intense thriller, and it's nice to see someone like Joseph Fiennes doing something promising again. Watch the trailer!
