I’m still not convinced whether this should have been done, but it has and there ain’t nothing we can do about it. The Korean cult film OLDBOY has been redone by director Spike Lee and today we get to see the red band trailer for the film. It looks pretty true to the original, so esthetically it pleases me, but they sure as hell give a lot away in the trailer, course not the big surprise and those of you who’ve watched the original know what I’m talking about. But yes the whistles and bells are there. It should be promising.
The film stars Josh Brolin, Samuel L.Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Lance Reddick, Michael Imperioli, and James Ransone. Oldboy opens on October 25th.
OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.
