Watch: Oldboy trailer
The highly anticipated American remake of Park Chan-wook’s Korean cult classic, Oldboy, finally has a trailer for your viewing pleasure. While many diehard fans of the original are clamoring that a remake is completely unnecessary, others are glad that the film (both versions) will reach a new audience. Time will tell if Spike Lee’s version with Josh Brolin as the lead and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley will meet everyone’s expectations are not. The trailer confirms that the violent hammer scene from the original is still intact, though the scene involving the live octopus is anyone’s guess at this point.
