Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' with Josh Brolin Delayed to November This Fall
Briefly: FilmDistrict has decided to move the release date of Spike Lee's new joint Oldboy, adapting the original Garon Tsuchiya manga / remaking the 2003 Park Chan-wook film. Originally set for October 25th, they will now release the film (date via ERCboxoffice) starting Wednesday, November 27th - Thanksgiving week, likely with additional nationwide expansions soon after. Josh Brolin stars as an advertising exec kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement who seeks revenge on his captor once he's free. The cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley and Rami Malek. We featured the first full trailer for Oldboy a few weeks ago, which looked much better than we were expecting.

I'm really excited to see this, I wonder if the move is a sign that they might have more faith in the film as a bigger contender for critical/commercial success?

Spike Lee has this list of films you should have seen, if you want to become a film director; not 1 Sci-Fi or Horror film on the list. Yet, here he has re-made a manga....

Excellent comment. Yes! That's exactly how coherent he is. Also his remarks on Tarantino.. UGH!
