Spike Lee's OLDBOY Gets New Release Date

Not a major shift by any means, but if you were looking forward to Spike Lee's Oldboy (which stars Josh Brolin as Joe Doucett, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel L. Jackson), you're now going to have a little longer to wait. Read on for details!

As you can see from the Tweet below, the release date of Spike Lee's Oldboy has been shifted from October 11th, 2013 to October 25th, 2013. That's only a difference of two weeks and moves the remake away from Sin City: A Dame to Kill, but closer to both Ender's Game and Thor: The Dark World. However, this does mean that the release of the the film is now a fair bit closer to Halloween, something which might just end up working in its favour. What do you guys think?







OLDBOY follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

Hopefully this is better than his last film.

Red Hook Summer was a brutal disappointment. I'm curious to see what he does here though, as always

Gusto, you haven't missed much, but if you're into documentaries, I highly recommend "When the Levees Broke"

I have a feeling it'll be like Dredd.
Amazing film, but nobody's going to watch it.
