FilmDistrict revealed an all new banner for Spike Lee’s Oldboy giving us yet another glimpse of the girl with the yellow umbrella. Reactions were mixed when the first trailer released but I have to say that I really like what I’ve seen so far. Josh Brolin was a fantastic choice for the lead role and it will be interesting to see his take on such a classic character. If you missed the film’s first red-band trailer, give it a watch here!
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.
Oldboy will star Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel Jackson, Bruce Hornsby, and James Ransone and was directed by Spike Lee from a script by Mark Protosevich. The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison, and Nathan Kahane. Look for it in theaters on October 25th.
