First Teaser Artwork for Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' Remake from CinemaCon
Another Spike Lee joint. Taking place this week in Las Vegas is the annual movie industry convention CinemaCon, where most of this year's marketing material makes its first appearance. One of the movies featured by way of the very first teaser art is Spike Lee's Oldboy, the remake of the Chan-wook Park's 2003 film, starring Josh Brolin in the Dae-su Oh role. Alas, Brolin is not seen on this art yet, because it's purely teaser art found at the show; I'm sure we'll see more later. The red scratch counting references the 20 years that Brolin's character, Joe Doucett, is imprisoned without explanation. When will we see footage from this?
Update: Here's the full HQ version of Spike Lee's Oldboy remake teaser artwork, sent to us by FilmDistrict:
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 release Oldboy on October 11th this year.
