Korean director Park-Chan Wook is a director who has given us some of the finest films Korea has to offer. Not only has he directed the superb Vengeance Trilogy, but also he has directed JSA, I’m A Cyborg and Thirst (which Stoker is a kind of follow up to). Stoker see’s the director making his first English language film, and fans are very excited indeed.
News came recently that Stoker will have its premiere at Sundance next month, and with that came a new poster and a couple of images. Today yet another, altogether more sinister poster has landed, and you can view it below. Check out the unsettling blood trickling down Matthew Goode’s face, creepy!
Stoker is directed by Park Chan-Wook, and is based on a screenplay written by Wentworth Miller. The excellent cast includes Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Lucas Till and Jackie Weaver. Expect to see Stoker in UK cinemas 1st March 2013.
India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
