It’s been a long time coming but it we finally have a synopsis and a poster for Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy. For those of you who haven’t seen Chan-wook Park’s original film you probably have no idea why this poster looks this way. I’m interested to see the direction Spike takes on this and I really am curious to see if the ending will remain the same (for those of you who have seen it you know what I’m talking about).
The original is available for streaming @ Netflix & Amazon Prime.
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.
The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin, and Elizabeth Olsen and hits theater’s October 11th, 2013.
