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.

Stoker trailer

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.

Everyone is firing on all cylinders here in the story that follows India (Mia Wasikowska), whose enigmatic and estranged uncle (Matthew Goode) returns to the family after the death of the girl’s father, and takes up with her mother (Nicole Kidman). People, however, start to go missing in her hometown at the same time, and she soon discovers that her uncle may be the cause. Kidman looks ferociously great as the bad mommy, while Wasikowska is solid as usual. But the real surprise? Goode. The actor has been waiting for a breakout part, and after earning some notices for "Burning Man," this wickedly dark turn looks like one he's knocking well out of the park.

Heightened by Park's trademark visual style (several scenes here are screengrab worthy), and an undeniable Hitchockian flavor, "Stoker" is looking very, very good. The movie lands on March 1, 2013. Watch below.
