Check out this new poster for Park Chan-wook’s “Stoker,” which twists storybook-like drawings, skulls, owls and other unsettling ephemera into a thicket surrounding the faces of Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman. A beautiful promo video accompanies the poster’s release, intercutting an anonymous artist drawing and shading the poster’s design with eerie shots from the film. It’s fitting that the artwork for “Stoker” would be pencil sketchings — Wasikowska’s character gets into some bloody mishief in the trailer with the pointy school supply.
The film is South Korean Chan-wook’s first foray into English-language filmmaking, and also stars Matthew Goode as the ominous, Hitchcockian-named Uncle Charlie, who comes to stay with Wasikowska and Kidman. The film is set to be released March 1, 2013.
