It has felt like a very very long time for Park Chan-Wook’s Stoker to finally get its official release, but it is now sooner than you might think! The director of the classic Vengeance Trilogy will finally be unleashing his first English language film at the Sundance film festival in January, and thankfully we only have to wait until March for the film to go on general release here in the UK.
To celebrate the films premiere, two new images have been released, and while they don’t exactly give much away, any news for the intense looking film is good news. The first image features Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska clearly at a funeral, while the second image is a shot of Chan-Wook in action as director. Nothing much, but boy am I excited about this one!
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.
