Redband Trailer for Oldboy (2013)

Oldboy (2013)

This preview is approved for appropriate audiences.

10 years after the Korean film Oldboy (2003), Spike Lee decided to direct an American version.  The original film was quite twisted and the remake appears like it will follow suit.

Oldboy (2013) is about a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and imprisoned for 20 years.  When he is finally released, he sets out for revenge on his unknown captor.  Why was he kidnapped and held for so long?  Who did it and why did they let him go?

The rest of the notable cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Michael Imperioli, Lance Reddick, Sharlto Copley, Max Casella, Rami Malek, James Ransone, and Grey Damon.

Brolin continues to choose his roles carefully.  If he pulls off his part, as it appears like he definitely will, this remake should be intensely awesome.

I am totally looking forward to this one!

The film is set to release on 11/29/13.
