FilmDistrict has finally unveiled the anticipated red-band trailer for Spike Lee's remake of
Park Chan-Wook's "Oldboy," which you can watch below.
The film as described by FilmDistrict:
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. Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane."
"Oldboy" is in theaters October 25th, though a few stops on the fall film festival circuit seems like a reasonable bet beforehand. Until then, check out the trailer:
