Surprises have been popping up all over the 50th annual New York Film Festival. Perhaps because it's celebrating an important semi-centennial milestone and its beloved chairman Richard Peña is stepping down after 25 years, NYFF is pulling in several riches this year. There's a surprise secret screening on Monday (which could be Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" if our guess work is right) and last night a small teaser was unveiled of a highly anticipated 2013 film: Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker."

As much as we're excited that Fox Searchlight made a last minute blitz to release "Hitchcock" into theaters for the award season, we kinda wish it was Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker" instead. Last week brought us a tease, but the full length trailer is here and it's stunning, stylized and impressive stuff, no less than we'd expect from the helmer behind "Oldboy" and the Vengeance trilogy.

After an almost unbearably long wait, with cameras first rolling a year ago, we now have our first footage from "Oldboy" director Park Chan-wook's English-language debut "Stoker," and yes, it looks pretty damn great.

While initially a picture many hoped would land at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Park Chan-wook's eagerly anticipated English language debut "Stoker" has been both heavily under wraps and long awaited, but now we're less than a year away from release and we're rolling the dice on a fall festival appearance.

Just as Abbas Kiarostami's “Certified Copy” glimpsed a different facet to the director's style through its international cast and location, Park Chan-Wook looks to follow suit with his English-language debut, “Stoker.” While the “Oldboy” helmer's particular brand of odd humor and unsettling drama will most likely remain intact, certain aspects of the film look to be taking a different approach, including the recent addition of one of the most talented composers working today.

We're almost exactly a third of the way through the year, and thanks to the announcement of the Cannes Film Festival line-up a couple weeks ago, we're now a little clearer on the timetable of some of the most anticipated films of the year. We know that "Cosmopolis," "Killing Them Softly," "On The Road," "Mud," "Rust And Bone," "Amour" and "The Paperboy," among others are done, and will be screening in only a few short weeks for critics, and U.S. releases, if not set already, can't be far behind. And the release schedule for the rest of the year is firming up fast, with films like "The Master" and "Seven Psychopaths" getting added to the calendar.

As far as Hollywood debuts go, few directors are as lucky as Park Chan-wook. With a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Mia Wasikowska, Jacki Weaver and most recently, Lucas Till, Park has a heavy hitting array of talent coming to bat for him in a project that seems perfectly tuned to his sensibilities. And now, one of the final pieces of the casting puzzle is in place and a Coppola family regular continues his rising career with a spot in "Stoker."

It's still too early to tell if we'll see the cast of "X-Men: First Class" in their mutant guises again. While the superhero prequel was well-received, the box office was somewhat underwhelming, with Matthew Vaughn's film turning out to be the lowest-grossing of the five installments so far (domestically at least), and, while "Thor" already has a sequel dated, word's been suspiciously quiet on a possible 'First Class' follow-up from the studio. Nevertheless, the young cast aren't doing too badly off it: James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender cemented their places on the A-list with their turns, Jennifer Lawrence bagged the much-sought-after lead in "The Hunger Games," and Nicholas Hoult is filming another tentpole, Bryan Singer's "Jack The Giant Killer." And now, one more of their cast mates has bagged a new role, in what's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing projects of 2012.
