New Poster And Trailer For Spike Lee’s “Oldboy”

Check out the new poster for Spike Lee’s remake of “Oldboy”. The film stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley. “Oldboy” is due out November 27th and is one highly anticipated thriller which has created a mixed but enthusiastic buzz across the blogosphere. I have often expressed discontent with Western remakes of Asian or Spanish films preferring to enjoy the original with subtitles-something always gets lost in the translation. I am on the fence with this one as well but I definitely intend on seeing it. It is Spike Lee!-how could I not!

“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.
