Here's the red-band trailer for Spike Lee's Oldboy remake, and what can I say other than it looks like a remake of Oldboy? You'll notice a few changes, but for the most part it looks like the same movie that was directed by Chan-wook Park. The good thing about the remake is that the story will reach a whole new audience, who will be inspired to watch the original.
The remake stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sharlto Copley.
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 movie comes out on October 25th, 2013. I'll see the movie because it's got a great cast, and I'm still curious to see how it turns out, especially since they changed the ending. Watch the trailer and let us know if it gets you excited to see the movie.
