Official poster for Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’

old boy poster

(From Los Angeles Times) The first poster for the American remake of “Oldboy” shows the film’s star Josh Brolin climbing out of a steamer trunk.

Director Spike Lee has said the film will be even darker than Chan-wook Park’s 2003 original “Oldeuboi,” the highly stylized Korean art house hit, based on a Japanese manga series, about a man who seeks revenge after being kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years.

Park’s dark and bloody film was a critical darling, earning the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and has since become a cult favorite, part of the director’s thematically linked Vengeance Trilogy (the other two films are 2002′s “Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance” and 2005′s “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.”

Lee’s remake, slated for an Oct. 25 theatrical release, was written by “I Am Legend” and “Thor” screenwriter Mark Protosevich.

Brolin stars as the revenge-seeking antihero, an advertising executive who has been kidnapped and imprisoned for 20 years. (In fact, the film’s “Oldboy” logo is Brolin’s handwriting, inspired by the letters his character writes to his daughter during his imprisonment.)

Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley costar. Samuel L. Jackson also appears in a small part of the film in a visceral revenge scene.
