Look Back at 20 Years Past in Crafty '20 Years of Oldboy' Tumblr Viral
How much would you have missed if you were locked up for 20 years? At this point in our history, a lot has happened in 20 years. The rise of the internet and changes in our society, three different presidents, natural and man-made disasters, and so much more. The distributor behind Spike Lee's Oldboy remake has been doing a pretty good job promoting the film through unique marketing ideas (like the women at Comic-Con). They've been running a Tumblr that is looking back at "20 Years of Oldboy" and all that happened while Joe Doucett, played by Josh Brolin, was locked up. A set of images, one for each year, have now debuted in full and we've collected the complete set for your perusing. A quick look back at the last 20 years since 1993.
"Explore the defining moments Joe Doucett missed, and share your own." Via the 20 Years of Oldboy page:
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.
