Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
The first poster for director Spike Lee’s Oldboy adaptation debuted earlier this month, followed a few days later by the red-band trailer. And now, with Comic-Con International in full swing, FilmDistrict has released a stunning new banner for the revenge thriller.
A remake of Park Chan-wook’s acclaimed 2003 film, which itself is based on the manga by Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi, Oldboy stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson, Lance Reddick and Michael Imperioli. It opens Oct. 25.
OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. 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. Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.
