Nicole Kidman stars in first trailer for Park Chan-wook’s Stoker: watch now

The first trailer has arrived for Stoker , Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s English-language debut, and it's every bit as unnerving as we’d hoped for.

The film follows the troubled adolescence of young India (Mia Wasikowska), whose father dies in a car accident, only for the sinister “Uncle Charlie” (Matthew Goode) to emerge from the woodwork and shack up with her mum (Nicole Kidman).

Not long after his arrival, India begins to suspect Charlie of some kind of involvement in her father’s death, but rather than recoiling from him, she begins to grow increasingly infatuated…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Unsettling stuff, we think you’ll agree. Matthew Goode has played the feckless cad more times than we can count, but this time he seems genuinely menacing. Meanwhile, Kidman comes off as pleasingly unhinged while Wasikowska looks on career-best form as the damaged youngster at the heart of proceedings.

Written by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller, and co-starring Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till and Dermot Mulroney, Stoker opens in the UK on 1 March 2013.
