We first got a glimpse of Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s Stoker a week ago. In it, the trailer was intent on selling Nicole Kidman playing a cold mother who is sending a threatening message to her daughter. As bone chilling as that speech was, the latter half of the trailer revealed that India (Mia Wasikowska) was no ordinary girl. Her quiet nature seemed to have got the attention of the uncle (Matthew Goode) she never knew. From there it spiraled into a psychological thriller that bares a resemblance to something Alfred Hitchcock would have directed.
Now a new trailer reveals India’s point of view. Most of the trailer focuses on what motivates this quiet and stoic high school student. We also get to hear a little bit more from that speech Kidman made in the first trailer. Check out the latest trailer for Stoker below.
So far, these trailers have shown that Stoker has all the elements of a psychological thriller. What are Uncle Charlie’s intentions for India? Why does Evelyn hate India so much? Why is this family so dysfunctional? And what’s with all the strangling? A lot of questions will be answered when Stoker hits theaters on March 1st, 2013.
After India’s (Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (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.
