Park Chan-wook‘s Stoker, Hollywood debut of the South Korean filmmaker behind Oldboy — and, most recently, Thirst — will have its first screening at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, and you can bet that early-word reactions will instantly become a hot ticket around the web. To hold us over until then, Yahoo! has charitably debuted a nearly-two-minute clip from the film, featuring Nicole Kidman in a performance that will hopefully continue her long-standing run of successful collaborations with left-field auteurs like Gus Van Sant (To Die For), Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut), Jonathan Glazer (Birth), and Lars von Trier (Dogville).
Take a look at the clip below, and don’t forget that Stoker‘s distinguished cast is also rounded out by Matthew Goode, Mia Wasikowska, Dermot Mulroney, and the recently Oscar-nominated Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook):
Also debuting online recently — this time via HitFix — is a clip showcasing Jessica Biel in writer-director Francesca Gregorini‘s Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes. (If you were one of those people who found the title of Benh Zeitlin‘s Beasts of the Southern Wild to be a bit bothersome, I dare you to justify this one.) The film, which has already screened in Park City, also stars Kaya Scodelario (who was very strong in Andrea Arnold‘s Wuthering Heights), Alfred Molina, and Frances O’Connor (The Hunter).
