A few days ago, the first poster for Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-Wook’s Oldboy arrived on the scene. And as promised, the first redband trailer is now here.
We won’t waste a lot of time explaining what you’re going to see. Suffice it to say based on the poster and now this trailer, we may have to rethink our skeptical thoughts about Spike Lee and his take on this modern classic.
Of course, some could argue that Oldboy didn’t really need an Americanized remake. A few of us here think that.
However, now that it’s on the way, we may as well embrace it and be cautiously optimistic it will end up being something pretty cool. It could happen. Judge for yourself after the break.
Look for Spike Lee’s Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley, to arrive in theaters on October 25.
