Hotel 'Oldboy' is Pure Hell in Chilling New Viral Video and Posters
Over the summer we learned that Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy wouldn't be hitting theaters until late November. So to hold us over a bit, following the red band trailer in July, there's a dark promo highlighting the accommodating hotel that Josh Brolin is forced to check into for no less than 20 years. This would have been an interesting teaser trailer before the story was laid out in the full trailer, especially with that menacing sort of voiceover from Samuel L. Jackson. In addition, we have a few promo posters also showing off the impressive amenities of the hellish hotel that holds Brolin prisoner. They're pretty creepy.

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.
