Spike Lee’s Oldboy, in theaters 11/27, has a new one-sheet from FilmDistrict. The remake stars Josh Brolin, Samuel Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Bruce Hornsby, and James Ransone. A cult favorite, the original has an easy time channeling a little ultra-violence. Will the upcoming version share the same visceral brutality?
“The pic 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.”
