Yet Another Stoker Poster Online
Kidman and Wasikowska go gothic

21 December 2012  |  Written by Owen Williams

Director Park, with these multiple Stoker posters you are spoiling us! Following the beautiful pencil-work version and the more traditional headshot (both international versions), there's an appropriately American Gothic vibe to the US one-sheet, presenting Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode.

Still a trace of that pencil-work around the border, you'll notice. Semiologists meanwhile, might wonder about the key around Wasikowska's neck, while the rest of us muse her bloody hand and the disturbingly sharp pencil she's clutching. Just for bonus posterage, by the way, this version is actually a variation on Spain's, in which Goode seems to have come off less well...

Stoker, you'll know by now, is the story of India (Wasikowska) dealing with the death of her father, the coincident return of her mysterious estranged Uncle Charlie (Goode), and the emotional deterioration of her mother (Kidman). Wentworth Miller wrote the screenplay (with later additions by Erin Cressida), and it's Park Chan-Wook's English-language debut as director. It's out in the UK on March 1.
