First 'Oldboy' Trailer Goes Red Band With Josh Brolin's Gruesome Attacks


Brolin plays Joe Doucett, a middle-aged man who gets kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years without any reason, in Spike Lee's remake of Park Chan-wook's 2003 pic.

Spike Lee proves that his version of "Oldboy" is no less gory and twisted than the original movie from director Park Chan-wook through its first trailer which directly goes red band. As featured in it, "Men in Black 3" actor Josh Brolin is the man who mysteriously puts held in captive for twenty years, five years longer than the one in the 2003 South Korean flick.

Once released, Brolin is seen setting out on a journey, going after answers to why he is imprisoned and released after so many years locked in solitary confinement as well as those responsible. Among chilling scenes teased in the video, the one that arguably leaves quite strong impression is when Brolin is featured smashing a man's head with a hammer.

Penned by Mark Protosevich, the big-screen adaptation of the Japanese manga of the same name is also supported by some other famous faces in Hollywood, including Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson, "District 9" star Sharlto Copley and Elizabeth Olsen, whose strong performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" earned her numerous nominations.

The violent film from FilmDistrict is produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison. It will make its way into U.S. theaters on October 25.
