New 'Stoker' poster features Nicole Kidman, and Mia Wasikowska's bloody hands -- EXCLUSIVE

Family? It’s complicated … but also bloody, at least when it comes to Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s thriller Stoker, which stars Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.

Case in point, check out this exclusive one-sheet poster for the film that features an unusual holiday-esque portrait warning “DO NOT DISTURB THE FAMILY” with a blood splattered twist.

Sundance to premiere 'Lovelace' and Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic

The Sundance Film Festival will give the world its first look at Amanda Seyfried as a porn star in the bio-pic Lovelace and Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in a chronicle of the Apple entrepreneur’s life in jOBS — just two high-profile projects in a packed Premieres section for the indie showcase.

The festival, which runs from Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah, already announced its competition lineup and Midnight Movies last week, but this non-competitive group is typically the place where films with celebrity-filled casts and best-known directors debut.

Other titles in today’s announcement include Before Midnight, the third film in the Richard Linklater-directed Ethan Hawke-July Delpy Before Sunrise and Before Sunset series — as well as new films from Steve Carell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Naomi Watts, Brit Marling, Paul Rudd, and Dakota Fanning. Directors Jane Campion, Park Chan-Wook, and Michael Winterbottom are also bringing their latest projects.

Coming to America: South Korea's top directors on hitting Hollywood with English language films -- EXCLUSIVE

There’s a scene in South Korean director Park Chan-wook’s 2003 revenge classic Oldboy, currently being remade by Spike Lee, in which the film’s wild-haired, wild-eyed lead Min-sik Choi plops down at a restaurant and slurps on a huge fidgety live octopus, its long tentacles squirming out of his mouth. To American audiences, the moment may seem totally strange. But Park says the scene is less disgusting to Korean audiences. “They would be able to sympathize with the protagonist at that stage, who was incarcerated for 14 years,” he told EW. “He wants to eat something that is alive and moving. By chewing on this living thing, he’s venting his anger to an unknown protagonist.”

'Stoker' soundtrack premiere of Emily Wells track 'Becomes the Color' -- EXCLUSIVE LISTEN!

In South Korean Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s upcoming first English language movie Stoker, out March 1, Nicole Kidman throws eye daggers as the unloving mother of a budding, brown-haired Mia Wasikowska. The family thriller, itself, is awash in blue-tinged darkness.

In keeping with Stoker‘s intense vibe, check out this exclusive track, “Becomes the Color,” by classical-hip-hop-electronic hybrid violinist and singer Emily Wells from the film’s soundtrack, out on Milan Records on Feb. 26. “I became the color, I became the daughter and the son, when the feast is over,” sing-raps Wells, who was hand-picked by Park for the film, in a ghostly voice behind a skittering mix of keyboard blips, floating electronic melodies and a steady drum beat. The soundtrack also includes a score by Clint Mansell (Black Swan) and original pieces by experimental composer Philip Glass.

'Stoker' trailer: Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska are one disturbing family -- VIDEO

Today’s creepy movie trailer is brought to you courtesy of Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, and Matthew Goode.

Stoker, written by Wentworth Miller, tells the story of a man who has just died. When his brother mysteriously shows up and moves in with the family, everything gets just a little bit terrifying. First going after mom (Kidman), he then turns his intense attention on her daughter (Wasikowska). The script was part of Hollywood’s 2010 buzzy “Black List,” that calls out the best “unproduced” scripts each year. Wentworth previously said of Stoker, “[It's a] horror film, a family drama and a psychological thriller, all wrapped up in one.”Watch the trailer below:

'The Paperboy' trailer: Nicole Kidman does WHAT to Zac Efron?!

Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy — his follow-up to 2009′s Precious — is bound to be divisive. At Cannes, the film garnered both boos and a 16-minute standing ovation. (EW’s own Owen Gleiberman understands both reactions: “I wanted to do a catcall and clap encouragingly at the same time,” he wrote after seeing its premiere.) It’s fitting, then, that the movie’s just-released trailer also seems divided against itself. The clip’s first 45 seconds or so seem to promise a relatively straightforward thriller about a southern belle with a no-good fiance (Nicole Kidman) and the short-shorts-clad kid who pines for her (Zac Efron). And then things get weird.

Between the gratuitous half-nudity, the cheesy split-screen effects, the campy music, and the fleeting glimpse of Kidman peeing on Efron to soothe a jellyfish sting — seriously — The Paperboy seems like it could be the cinematic equivalent of Stefon‘s favorite clubs. But hey, what would you expect from a film with a poster that looks like the cover of a Jacqueline Susann novel? Watch the clip in all its pulpy glory after the jump.

Cannes: 'The Paperboy,' starring Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman, proves that 'Precious' director Lee Daniels needs some common sense to go with his talent

When you hear about a movie that gets booed at the Cannes Film Festival, you tend to picture a monolithic thumbs-down chorus, like an ancient arena crowd turning on a gladiator. Actually, that’s not how it works. There is almost always at least some polite applause after film festival showings, so the boos, when they do happen, tend to be mixed in with clapping. That’s the sound I heard this morning when the closing credits rolled on Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy. And, in fact, that sound expressed my own feelings exactly. I wanted to do a catcall and clap encouragingly at the same time. READ FULL STORY

Cannes 2012 preview: Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Kristen Stewart bring Hollywood glitz to the French Riviera -- VIDEO

Since its inception in 1947, the Cannes Film Festival has been the ne plus ultra of international cinema, but rarely has the festival featured quite so many American filmmakers and Hollywood movie stars. The 2012 Cannes festival gets underway on Wednesday with the opening film, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and over the course of the subsequent 11 days, the festival will premiere films starring (deep breath) Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart, Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Robert Pattinson, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Hardy, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, and Matthew McConaughey (in two movies!), with filmmakers like Anderson, Lee Daniels, and John Hillcoat screening their films in competition for the first time. Meanwhile, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and the HBO TV movie Hemingway & Gellhorn are both premiering out of competition.

EW’s Owen Gleiberman will be detailing all his thoughts on the great and not so great at Cannes, but here’s a quick primer on what’s likely to light up the famed Croisette, in chronological order of their big premieres inside the cavernous Grand Théâtre Lumière.  READ FULL STORY
