We still have a little while to wait until Spike Lee's brilliant looking Oldboy is released, but in the meantime, here's a cool new poster featuring a hammer wielding Josh Brolin. He does NOT look happy!

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.

A lot of Dexter-like things in that trailer. Using a hammer as a weapon, the guy tied down on the table before killing him, using a marker to know where to cut.

Hope this delivers. I think Josh Brolin would have been a great Batman.

I wonder how much incest is going to be in this.

He is on his way to Hook and The Daggers to help them build a half pipe for those old skateboarding times.

Acoording to the trailer the movie is a perfect copycat frame by frame from the korean Old Boy so I guess what you see in the original movie will be in the movie.

What I don't understand is that they previously say Spike Lee's version would be an adaptation of the manga but it seems we have a remake of the original here.

Which is great because the original was awesome, but it's a bit lazy from the director....

Well almost... the trailer basically eliminates all hints of potential incest. But yeah... apart from that it looks a bit to close for comfort with the original.

The so called "Original" movie as great as it is, was a Korean film, NOT a Japanese original from the original Japanese manga. The Korean's used their own character names, their own settings and changed the story details to suit their own version. There is no incest in the original Manga. The entire Hammer hallway fight scene is also one unique to the Korean movie so Spike Lee copying that simply means this American version is gonna be a bastardization of both Manga and Korean movie.

One day the Japanese will get off their asses and make a proper adaptation but in the meantime we'll make do with the great re-interpretations of the Korean version and hope Spike Lee delivers something worthy of the original Manga as well.
