Movie Trailer: Spike Lee’s Oldboy follows original pretty closely
If you haven’t seen Park Chan-wood’s original Olboy, you need to. It’s an amazing film with some pretty famous fight scenes that are incredible. The story takes some odd turns but it’s very, very good.
And we finally get the first, and a Red-Band at that, trailer for Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy. The film stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel L. Jackson. Brolin plays the main character and by the trailer, Lee’s remake looks to follow the original pretty closely but it definitely has a 2013 feel to it. It’s obviously in English too and has some culture differences because of that, which you could expect. Because I loved the first one, I was a little hesitant about this project, but it actually looks pretty descent so it’s peaked my curiosity.
Fair warning, this is a Red-Band trailer so expect a bit more.
Oldboy comes to us October 25.
