Nicole Kidman: New 'Stoker' Poster

Check out the newly released poster for Nicole Kidman‘s Stoker, written by Wentworth Miller!

The 45-year-old actress is joined on the poster by her co-stars Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Nicole Kidman

Here’s the film synopsis: India Stoker (Wasikowska) was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie (Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

Mark your calendars, Stoker is out in theaters on January 20, 2013!

Based on trailors, the cinematography is amazing. I just want to see something different.

I want to see Nicole as a very first female vallain in a Bonds Film. No weapons carried, just very cunning fox type person, plotting and planning to destroy things. Of course, she has to hire some mercenaries to carry out the dirty work. Or,not directly against Bond, but to get vegence against M.

The trailer for this movie looks intriguing. Can’t wait.

Nicole is the best actress of her generation.

house of wax

Nicole Mary Kidman the most beautiful, elegant, glamorous woman of the world!!! Love Keith and Nicole! They’re so sweet together!

@hanna:
Cate Blanchett
Rachel Weisz
Renee Zellweger
Thandie Newton
Juliann Moore
Marion Cotillard
All of the above actresses match and/or exceed Nicole Kidman in terms of acting and screen presence.

This post should mention that this film was directed by the great Chan-wook Park, who directed the original “Oldboy”, a masterpiece, and “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance”, two films which, unfortunately, Hollywood has decided to remake.
Mia Wasikowska is one of the most interesting young actresses at the moment.

@Not Even:

From your list, Julianne & Thandie haven’t won an Oscar, so to say everyone on your list matches or exceeds Nicole is false!

Wentworth Miller was an English grad from Princeton or Yale before he did errands for HW studio execs, which in turn was before he landed prison break. Smart guy (and closeted, apparently – trivia). Mia is an excelletn actor; however, have to agree witht he poster up there, Nicole’s lip area looks very stiff. Matthew Goode also very solid.

@LOL:

“All of the above actresses match and/or exceed Nicole Kidman in terms of acting and screen presence.”

No mention of Awards.

@LOL: Oh forgot one other favorite – Charlize Theron – who currently sporting nice natural fade for her role in Mad Max – http://www.justjared.com/2012/12/22/charlize-theron-pampers-mother-gerda/#respond

Watch the Stoker trailer and you will hear the venomous words coming out of Nicole’s mouth but unfortunately, the dialogue doesn’t match her frozen facial expression. However, in this instance, her blood shot eyes do work in her favour. Kidman’s crazy face is the truly scary aspect of this movie.

Kidman playing an emotionally unstable mother. No acting required by Nicole for this role … just ask Bella and Conor.

… We’ve heard in the past that Nicole Kidman is not the most pleasant person to work with or for. The 2008 Andrew Morton Tom Cruise book painted her as cold and moody, and described how demanding and particular she could be. He wrote “If the jet wasn’t stocked with Beluga caviar and all the trimmings she appeared deeply irritated, exhibiting a jaded petulance. Nicole often seemed bored or disenchanted with her life as a Hollywood star, expecting a luxurious lifestyle as her birthright. She had no sense of wonderment about the world. So many wonderful things happened to her, but she had an enduring sense of boredom.”

According to a source on the Stoker set, Nicole won’t even let crew members talk to her. Nicole Kidman’s shooting her new horror film “Stoker” in Nashville, but crew members swear the real horror is Nicole! Reports [a] backstage spy…”Nicole is a real witch, and they’ve nicknamed her ‘Ice Princess.’ No one’s even allowed to speak to her, except for primary cast members, the director or producers. The other day she requested a glass of water and was furious when the person brought her water with ice in it. ‘I don’t drink ice water,’ Nicole bellowed, demanding a room temperature refill. Everyone’s walking around on eggshells to make sure ‘Her Majesty’ is not displeased.” In another bizarre incident, a prop person moved an umbrella she was using in a scene from one side of a table to the other. When they began to rehearse the scene, Nicole threw a fit over the minor re positioning and read the poor guy the riot act …

@:):

If I may point out– most of Morton’s book was second hand gossip. Cruise told everyone not to cooperate with Morton. So anyone who spoke probably had an axe to grind.

Secondly every famous actor/actress out there has gotten the “won’t even let crew members talk to him/her” line. Including Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise among others. If you do your research you will find directors, producers, actors who have worked with her and crew all have said complimentary things about her. In fact, one of the British newspapers reported Nicole was furious on the set of Stoker — when she found out the extras were outside and freezing. She made them stop production and get some heaters or coats for them since they’d been standing outside for hours.

Similar gossip about Diva behavior in blind vices, un-named sources etc. has surfaced about Pitt, Clooney, Cruise, Holmes, Theron, Berry and many many others.

when people are unwilling to attach their names to gossip and heresay it is hard to take them seriously.

@:):

The comments on her being an Ice Princess appeared in the National Enquirer first. And anyone with half a brain knows most of their stuff is made up anyhow. One of their high ranking editors was on 60 Minutes I believe and even said they made up a lot. So I would hardly put stock in anything they say.

And as another poster said–Cruise wouldn’t let anyone talk to Morton on record, so it was really easy for him to trash anyone he wanted with anonymous sources.

So many dark secrets in Tommy Girl’s closet, is it a wonder he ordered people not to cooperate with Morton. But luckily there are always some who don’t give a rats about Cruise and Kidman and are willing to tell it like it is.

It was reported Kidman was apparently upset on the set of ‘Grace Kelly’ and organised rugs, etc for freezing extras. Nice PR move Nickers, probably done to counter the negative fallout from the Stoker film set.

Everything I have read the last few years about Nicole is that she is very kind and generous to the people working on her films. Keith Urban is a very humble and wonderful man, perhaps his habits have wore off on her. Maybe life with Tom Cruise was a bit tense and unreal.

I have no doubt Kidman will be more than convincing in this role. Her wooden acting and maniacal face are perfect for a B grade horror movie.

I have watched the Stoker trailer and here is the dilemma. Nicole’s mouth is now her ONLY facial feature that moves. Consequently, the viewer is required to listen very intently to the dialogue to try and understand the emotion behind the words. Visually, the only thing you end up concentrating on is her moving, slug like lips and the whole spectre then becomes quite disturbing and ridiculous.

Wow. So many trolls here. So many vicious, nasty comments. I mean, why talk about her “lip area”? WTH? And gossip from the National Enquirer? Seriously? Nicole Kidman is a great, fearless actress, she gives great performance after great performance, from To Die For to Moulin Rouge, from The Others to Rabbit Hole, from The Hours to The Paperboy, from Eyes Wide Shut to Birth, from Dogville to Margot at the Wedding. She’s an Academy Award winner, she’s very respected in the movie industry, she works with the greatest directors and actors. Is that the reason why some people here are so bitter? Because she’s beautiful, talented, glamorous, intelligent and respected?

@Not Even: I disagree with you. I think Kidman’s performances in To Die For, Birth, Dogville, The Others and Rabbit Hole are superior to anything those actresses you listed have ever done.

@Jen: What a ridiculous comment. By the way, there’s already great buzz about Stoker and Kidman’s performance in it.

@Not Even: Charlize Theron was great in Monster and good in Young Adult. And that’s it. She’s nothing special (except beautiful) in everything else I’ve seen her in.

@Lynn: “a B grade horror movie”? You don’t know much about movies, do you? FYI, the director of Stoker, Chan wook Park, is a genius.

Wentworth! Read the script for this years ago and have been keenly awaiting its arrival. Not too keen on the poster, however. The typography is weak and the border distracting. It also reminds me a touch of the poster for ‘The Hours’, also with Kidman.

To trolls/haters: suck on this!

Nicole just got 2 nominations from her peers, the Screen Actors Guild:
Best Supporting Actress – for her role in “Paperboy”
Best Actress in TV Movie or Miniseries – for her role in “Hemingway and Gellhorn”

She also got 2 Golden Globe nominations:
Best Supporting Actress – for her role in “Paperboy”
Best Actress in TV Movie or Miniseries – for her role in “Hemingway and Gellhorn”

Another emotionally unstable character for Nicole. Aren’t there any other roles for women her age?

Little MY @ 12/23/2012 at 2:49 pm

Oh dear,

Haters need to shove their heads up their @sses, Nicole’s already been getting praise for the film, the sundance write up has her stealing the show from Mia and Matthew.

It’s one troll, one idiot with different names who apparentky watched Titanic recently.

Nicole always campaigns ferociously to secure award nominations and there was always the cunningly timed DuJour magazine piece, where she gushed about her love for Cruise. The interview was shrewdly scheduled for release in December, garnering her maximum self-promotional publicity for the awards season.

@Jack Dawson: yeah, but Mia is gorgeous.

@TC:

Actually neither she nor the studios campaigned “ferociously” this time round. And really, the article in DuJour – a magazine I bet most people have never heard of outside its main circulation circle–really-it was responsible for the nominations??? ROFLMAO

Campaigning Ferociously? @ 12/23/2012 at 8:14 pm

@toria:

-Whether SAG voters responded to the film as camp or took it at face value, they also were responding to a not-so-stealth campaign on Kidman’s behalf. Screeners for “The Paperboy” were sent out widely, with Kidman being the only talent named on the box, not Matthew McConaughey, Efron, Cusack or Daniels. She made a few Q&A appearances on behalf of the film in Los Angeles and made herself available for interviews from Europe, where she is filming “Grace of Monaco.”-

http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/nicole-kidman-talks-the-paperboy

- And so Kidman got on Skype, after a long shooting day playing Princess Grace in “Grace of Monaco” in Belgium, to talk about why she was willing to go almost all the way to play southern bombshell Charlotte Bless.-

ttp://www.compassnewspaper.org/index.php/component/content/article/90-front-page-/11058-golden-globes-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-film-nominations-

-Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy) for best supporting actress, a performance in a divisive film that was on virtually nobody’s awards radar until Kidman scored a surprise SAG Award nomination Wednesday. Now, all of a sudden, with both a SAG and a Globe nom, she looks like a formidable contender.-

OK, if not “ferociously”…erm… how about “aggressively”? :-)

@TC: “campaigns ferociously”?
Have you seen how many magazine covers and how many talk shows Anne Hathway have been on? And just to make sure she grabbed all the headlines, Anne attended a red carpet event in a tight dress with a high slit and hooker boots and no underwear. She spread her legs wide when getting out of her car. Bingo! The photographers snapped her panty-less crotch area. That’s how you “campaign ferociously”!

Mia is killing it in her career ..so young & working with the best people.. its refreshing to see a young lady be so together.. kudos to her!

Can’t wait to see this when it goes straight to redbox…LOL. That’s the way these things r going

@TC: Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams are campaigning far more “ferociously” than Nicole. They are everywhere, on every TV shows and Oscar rountables. Even Ann Dowd is campaigning more than Nicole. All Nicole did was three or four skype interviews with internet bloggers.
That article from Indiewire is pure bullsh*t from a supposed “Oscar pundit” who can’t accept that his SAG awards predictions were wrong and that his favourite actresses weren’t nominated (that’s how ridiculous those people are, they make award predictions without having seen the films they talk about).
Kidman has been busy filming “Grace of Monaco” in France and Belgium for the last two and three months and she has made only ONE Q&A appearance in LA to promote “The Paperboy” (not “a few”). If anything, the fact that she has to do so little to get awards nominations just shows that her performance in the film is really fantastic and how respected she is in the movie industry. But, of course, angry, bitter haters can’t accept that.

@oy: You obviously haven’t seen The Paperboy…

@To Josh: Is that person a scientologist and/or an angry Tom Cruise fan? Because the way he/she constantly and obsessively attacks Kidman on JJ makes him/her sound like one…

plain truth @ 12/24/2012 at 5:36 am

@Josh: a bitter Keith Urban fan who has been bashing Kidman since they started dating. There’s a few sick women who have been online doing nothing but hating on her and her marriage for years. It takes quite a warped mind to post things like Kidman bought her children, her marriage is one long pr stunt, and she’s a predator on boys cast in her films. These women troll the internet reading gossip and blogs looking dirt. It’s why that’s all you’ll see in their responses here.. They aren’t film buffs or knowledgeable industry folk. They are women devoted to hating Nicole Kidman. Ask them about the smear campaign against director Bigelow or The Master falllout and they wouldn’t have a clue because it has nothing to do with Kidman. The post that says some pretty pictures and comments about Cruise (who can’t buy an Oscar uf he tried) in an obscure magazine got Kidman nominations tells you exactly how low of an intellect level you’re dealing with here.

@plain truth: Okay. I really thought they were scientologists. The vicious attacks, the repetitive lies, the ridiculous comments about subjects they obviously know nothing about. That’s what scientologists do against their ex-members and opponents. That’s called “Fair game”. L.Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s founder, said that his followers should, I quote, “always find or manufacture enough threat against their opponents to cause them to sue for peace. Don’t ever defend. Always attack.” He urged the use of “black propaganda” to “destroy reputation or public belief in persons”. That’s exactly what I see here. And since Kidman is an ex-member of the church of Scientology…

I found a review of Stoker (from one of the Sundance Film Festival selectors) : “Visionary filmmaker Park Chan-Wook, whose Old Boy and Three…Extremes both played at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005, returns with another macabre story, one that marks his first venture into English-language cinema. Armed with an inspired script, a world-class cast, and a wickedly playful nature, he subverts audience expectations by employing delightful visual trickery and placing a magnet over the moral compass of the film, giving complex and sympathetic motivations for the characters’ violent actions. Featuring a gasp-inducing performance from Nicole Kidman, Stoker is a haunting, Hitchcockian tale as unsettling as it is stunning. – T. G.”

@Not Even:
lol. You tried sis, you really did

Josh … seriously, the only gasp-inducing performance Kidman will conjure in the B-Grade movie Stoker, is when the camera pans to her eerily cartoonish face.

@..: You probably said that about The Paperboy too. And look, her performance was almost universally praised and she got a Screen Actors Guild award nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for it (and there’s Oscar buzz). And why do you say Stoker will be a B grade movie? It’s directed by Chan Wook Park and from the trailer, it looks great. You obviously haven’t seen his movies.

@ Not Even. You are probably right, but for me Nicole Kidman is hard to beat, she fascinates the hell out of me, on screen and reading about her and her family. I don’t know exactly why but she does.

These mean comments made about Nicoles face and her acting is all made by one person ( one very sick person) . Frozoid and tons of other made up names. God please get some help. You are jealous of her beautiful life and it is making you sick with envy. Poor thing.
