In all probability, after watching the trailer of Stoker once, you will replay it in order to understand what all you just saw in the fast-paced 60-second trailer of the film. Starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode, Stoker is drama-horror-mystery film, the trailer of which captivates you from the get-go.
The video begins with the funeral of India Stoker’s (Mia Wasikowska) father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in procession. Just when one thought the distressed daughter is now left all alone with her unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), her uncle Charlie (not from the Two and a Half Men) makes his entry.
The smirk and mystery on Charlie’s (Matthew Goode) face when Kidman introduces him to Wasikowska connote his wicked intentions. With both the mother and the daughter falling for the consummate charmer, the Stoker family will go through a lot.
Speaking more about the trailer, certain shots (like a spider running on her shoes) and the gloominess in the video impress like anything. The video looks erotic, too, at times with all the hot love-making scenes.
Concisely, the trailer of Stoker is a mystery in itself and makes for a riveting watch! Do pay heed to the editing, the cuts and the background score. Also catch some stills on the following pages.
