The Spike Lee/Josh Brolin remake of 'Oldboy' now has a poster


It’s been ten years since Korean director Park Chan-wook released Oldboy, his cult-hit surreal thriller about a man who is suddenly released after fifteen years of mysterious solitary imprisonment. This October, Spike Lee directs Josh Brolin in a Hollywood version of Oldboy – also based on the Japanese manga series as the original. Details about the new movie have been kept under wraps, but a poster just appeared at CinemaCon. And you thought fifteen years was a long time…

Still unclear: Will Brolin eat a live octopus? Or utilize a hammer?
