The first trailer for Oldboy director Park Chan-wook‘s English-language debut Stoker has been released.  The film centers on a young girl (Mia Wasikowska) who encounters her mysterious uncle (Matthew Goode) while mourning the death of her father (Dermot Mulroney).  Chan-wook’s signature lush visual palette is on full display in this trailer, along with a wonderful air of creepiness and foreboding.  There’s promise of some strong performances from the whole cast, especially Nicole Kidman as Wasikowska’s wary mother, and the tone is downright chilling.  I can’t tell if the trailer gives too much away or if it’s a great tease of the film’s atmosphere, but this looks like a great way for Chan-wook to make his American debut.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film stars Jackie Weaver, Lucas Till, and Alden EhrenreichStoker opens on March 1st, 2013.

Here’s the synopsis for Stoker:

After India’s (Wasikowska’s) 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 (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.
