First Poster And Intriguing Images From Spike Lee's Oldboy Remake

Ed Brown writes for Bleeding Cool.

This new poster is for Spike Lee's Oldboy, the new film adaptation of the same comic book story that was previously adapted by Chan-wook Park.

The image is supposedly a shot from the film, and I have to say it's looking very stylish. With the massive cult following of the original film, Lee is going to have to pull something very powerful out of the suitcase bag if he wants to keep angry fans at bay.


Thanks to ComingSoon for the poster.

In addition, a gallery of images has appeared on the film's official Facebook page. These all seem to be glimpses from the room where Josh Brolin's character will find himself trapped at the beginning of the story.

The images make strong use of the tally system that the protagonist employed whilst imprisoned, the numbers used as a countdown to tomorrow's big trailer.

That trailer should reveal a good deal more…  though not too much, he said, winking knowingly.

I still can't get over the casting for this. Alongside Brolin we have Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel L Jackson. Their roles will be pretty easy to figure out if you've seen the original, but if not, I won't ruin the surprise.

Spike Lee's Oldboy will be released in the US on October 25th and in the UK on December 6th.
