In the new thriller "Stoker," there's a scene involving Mia Wasikowska playing piano with her uncle, played by Matthew Goode. During this incredibly sophisticated duet he puts his arm around her back to play some keys at a higher octave, and they both start breathing heavily…
That's right, it's a sex scene with NO SEX!
This is not an innovative conceit, though, since we have nine other examples of this titillating tactic on display for your viewing pleasure. It's all of the hanky with none of the panky.

If you're stoked on "Stoker," you can thank "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller, who is making his screenwriting debut with the gothic Park Chan-wook affair. Miller wrote the script under a pseudonym, and the results ended up on the 2010 Black List of hot screenplays that weren't yet snagged by studios.
Wentworth, we hardly knew ye!
Miller isn't the only surprising star doing double-duty as a writer, either. He joins an impressive list of famous, Hollywood faces that wield a mean pen or, more likely, the latest version of Final Draft. Get More »

We're not into giving out spoilers, but in the upcoming new psychological horror film "Stoker" by "Oldboy" director Chan-wook Park, a certain character not only doesn't make it out alive, their only purpose in the film seemed to be ... to die.
Looks like someone just had a red shirt moment.
"Red shirt," of course, refers the the classic "Star Trek" habit of having random Enterprise crew members — inevitably wearing a blood red uniform — accompany Spock and Kirk on a dangerous mission, only to die terribly while the main characters get away without a scratch.
So in honor of "Stoker," here's a look at some of our favorite red shirts in film history. Because if someone has to die, it might as well be someone we don't care at all about. Caution: Non-"Stoker" spoilers ahead! Get More »
Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
A lot of horror movies come out around this time of year and most of them try to use some kind of gimmick to produce scares. You know, the video tape is haunted! The little girl is actually Satan! The guy kills people with ridiculously complicated Rube Goldberg machines! Whatever.
Every once in a while, though, something comes out that is legitimately scary, like the brand new trailer for "Stoker." And its secret?
That the scariest thing of all is often your own family. Get More »
We have a quick confession: We're pretty stoked about the two fresh faces joining director Chan-wook Park's super-spooky Fox Searchlight film "Stoker."

Jacki Weaver is ready to strike fear into the hearts of the masses once again. The Australian actress, whose portrayal of crime family matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody in 2010's "Animal Kingdom" earned her an Oscar nomination, is heading back to the big screen to star in Fox Searchlight's upcoming thriller, "Stoker."
Deadline reports that the Oscar-nominated actress will join Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, and "The Kids Are All Right" actress Mia Wasikowska in the film, penned by "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller under his nom de plume, Ted Foulke.
The film, produced by Ridley and Tony Scott and Michael Costigan, tells the story of a teen whose mysterious uncle enters her life following the death of her father, because, much like in real life, creepy uncles are always lurking around just waiting for the chance to be that guy. Get More »
Who can resist the allure of a "creepy uncle" role?
Certainly not Matthew Goode, as he's signed on to play such a part in "Stoker," director Park Chan-wook's latest thriller, according to Variety.
"Stoker" tells the story of a mother (Nicole Kidman) and daughter (Mia Wasikowska) who are visited by the girl's mysterious uncle after her father passes away.
"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller, who wrote the script under the pseudonym Ted Foulke, describes the tale as a "thriller about an individual who preys on the innocent" -- more of a spin on Bram Stoker's "Dracula" tale rather than a traditional adaptation (in other words, don't expect Goode to sprout fangs).
