Opening in theaters on March 1st is the new mystery thriller Stoker from acclaimed South Korean director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy). The film was written by actor-turned-screenwriter Wentworth Miller (TV's Prison Break) under the pen name Ted Faulke, and features an excellent cast of actors that includes Mia Wasikowska (Lawless), Matthew Goode (Watchmen), Dermot Mulroney (The Grey), Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures), Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), recent Oscar-nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), and Academy Award-winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Matthew Goode to talk about his work on Stoker, as well as the legacy of Watchmen. The popular actor discussed his new film, how he got the role, working with acclaimed Director Park and his unique visual style, Wentworth Miller's exceptional script, the movie's themes of bad blood, his character's arc, his thoughts on the legacy of Watchmen, wishing Ozymandias had more of a backstory, the necessity to cut the "squid" from the ending, author Alan Moore's distaste for the film, and why it is truly director Zack Snyder's under appreciated masterpiece.
