Josh Brolin Emerges From The Official OLDBOY Poster
Spike Lee's spin on Oldboy hits theaters screens October 25th, at which point the dissection of how much the film is a straight remake of Park Chan-wook's violent opus versus how much it calls back to the source manga (as producers have promised it will do) versus how much is totally new (ditto) will begin in earnest. But for now? Now you can cast your eyes on the official theatrical one sheet.
Rather than going the all-too-common photoshop route with this one FilmDistrict have used a still shot from the film itself with the text in Brolin's actual handwriting. Click the image below for a large version.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.
