Must Watch: Nicole Kidman in Park Chan-wook's 'Stoker' First Trailer

"Personally speaking, I can't wait to watch life tear you apart." While Spike Lee is working on a remake of Park Chan-wook's Oldboy, the South Korean filmmaker is back with his new film Stoker. Complete with some creepy and stark imagery, the film evokes a feeling of Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, but I also found myself reminded of Cria Cuervos for some reason. Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode seem to put in overly ominous performances as Mia Wasikowska becomes more curious of their inappropriate relationship and twisted behavior. This looks like yet another jarring film from Park Chan-wook. Check it!

Here's the first trailer for Park Chan-wook's Stoker, originally from Apple:

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. Thoughts?

Such an awesome director! Can't wait to see this!

Right on, man. I will be anticipating this from now on, even despite Nicole Kidman. Park Chan Wook's films definitely always have an unsettling factor, but they're so captivating.

Why do you say "even despite Nicole Kidman"? She looks fantastic in this. And she has proven again and again over the years that she's a great actress.

I found Goode to be awesome in Watchmen but he hasn't seem to have gotten much work since. It's good to see him taking on such a role with an amazing director

A screenplay by Wentworth Miller? Did I read that correctly? Fascinating. And Matthew Goode looks great as a psychopath.

It was very high on the blacklist in 2010 or 09

Nicole Kidman... pity.

What? Nicole Kidman looks fantastic in this. And she also looks great in "The Paperboy". She's one of the very best actresses around these days. I admire her for the artistic risks she always takes. Pity that she very rarely gets the credit she deserves.

Asian director transitioning to Hollywood that actually works? Looks good! Indian Paintbrush seems to be on a roll. I love Mia W. and the look of the film is just so stunning! WOW
