While the Sundance crowd is enjoying Park Chan-wook’s Stoker in its entirety, the rest of the internet is being treated to a new trailer. This sixty-second cut plays up the film’s weirdness, eroticism and outright violence in time with an overt bit of music that’s just as strange. It’s reminiscent of the trailers for Requiem for a Dream and the more recent Savages from Oliver Stone. It’s a nice tonal introduction for a film from the director of Oldboy.
Starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode, Stoker opens in limited release on March 1st. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

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.
