We were curious why Stoker, the Nashville-shot English-language debut of gifted South Korean director Park Chan-wook, hadn't showed up on the fall festival circuit. Whatever the reason, the trailer for the psychological thriller — starring Nicole Kidman (third-billed?), Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska, has just been posted online with a March 2013 release date.
Immediate reaction: very creepy, with Kidman putting us off balance just seconds in; looks considerably less assaultive than the movies that made Park's rep; hey, dig the anonymous eeriness of those Nashville locations! Check it out.
