Another Sleek NYCC Poster for Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' with Josh Brolin

October 10, 2013


Ask why you were set free. Great tagline. Timed with a presentation at New York Comic-Con (which we will not be attending or covering at this point before the release), FilmDistrict has debuted another impressive poster for Spike Lee's Oldboy starring Josh Brolin. While I love that get-out-of-the-box poster from earlier, this one is just as unique and just as visually intriguing. The actual poster has Brolin standing tall with sleek imagery of the girl with the umbrella standing in the rain positioned right in his mid-section. There's just something about it that really stands out, I like it. But I just want to see the damn movie already, we've been hyping it up for so long and everyone knows the story (from Chan-wook Park's Oldboy), let's see this thing.

Here's the new poster for Spike Lee's Oldboy being given out to fans at New York Comic-Con. Via

Here's the other alternate poster for Spike Lee's Oldboy, showing just the umbrella girl seen in the middle. This second poster was custom made by RopeofSilicon as an alternate design, so they deserve the credit.

Spike Lee's Oldboy, written by Mark Protosevich (The Cell, I Am Legend) based on the original manga, tells the story of an advertising executive (Brolin) who is inexplicably kidnapped and held captive for 20 years. When he's unceremoniously released, he goes on an obsessive quest to find out who did this to him and why, enlisting the help of a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) before he eventually tracks down an enigmatic man (Sharlto Copley) who may have all the answers. Also co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Portnow and Lance Reddick. "Spike Lee is the right filmmaker to reimagine and put his touch onto arguably one of the most talked about thrillers in recent memory." FilmDistrict will open Oldboy on November 27th this fall.

    Great lookin' poster/s. The second one reminds me quite a bit of Sin City though.
