Oldboy Banners Keep CountThe upcoming CinemaCon show in Vegas has offered a first look at the title treatment for Spike Lee’s take on Oldboy starring Josh Brolin. Look for the flick in theatres on October 11, 2013. Will you be there or are you just gonna stick with the Korean classic?

James Ransone, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel Jackson all star in the remake of Park Chan-wook’s masterpiece. FilmDistrict acquired U.S. distribution rights to the flick during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Brolin plays an ad exec who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. 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. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Olsen) and ultimately to an odd man (Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Having just watched to original Oldboy again last night, I am curious to see what they do with the remake.

    On one hand, I’m glad they didn’t shit this out immediately after the original’s release. Time and effort has (hopefully) been taken to get this right, and the cast looks very solid.

    On the other hand, I have strong reservations about their ability to adapt and match the sheer what-the-fuckness of the original.

    Until a trailer or some footage is released, I’m tentatively and reservedly excited for this. The original is one of my favorite movies (Sorry, Creepy), and I’d like to see a great adaptation, but we’ll just have to wait and see if Spike Lee & co. can pull this off. Fingers crossed.
