You'd think that a guy trapped in a hotel room for 20 years would find a better movie to be in once he got out, right?
'Oldboy,' Spike Lee's remake of the Park Chan-wook cult film from 2003, is a fairly rotten film, which is strange because it is very similar to the rather effective original. Sometimes, though, there's something gained in the translation.

Josh Brolin is back with a vengeance, as is apparent in a newly released clip from 'Oldboy,' the American remake of Park Chan-wook's 2003 South Korean mystery-thriller. While we've already seen bits of him in action, in addition to his co-star Elizabeth Olsen ('The Avengers 2'), FilmDistrict offers up even more footage, plus new photos featuring 'Elysium' star Sharlto Copley, and more!

Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' changed some skeptical minds when the red-band trailer hit earlier this month. Looking like a faithful and intense remake, the trailer got us thinking that the movie might be a thriller worthy of our time after all. But, now comes the news that it's release date has been pushed back, and this isn't the first time. Should we be concerned?

The worst thing a remake of Park Chan-Wook's incredible 'Oldboy' can be is generic, which is why a newly released poster for Spike Lee's upcoming remake has, for the first time, filled us with true optimism about the project. The fact that an official one-sheet for the film is this bizarre leads up to believe that (maybe, perhaps, hopefully) the final film will be as insane as the Korean original. Fingers crossed, folks.

As much as the thought of an American remake of Chan-wook Park's 'Oldboy' makes our skin crawl, we can't help but remain interested in this project. Sure, the very concept sounds like a train wreck on paper, but when you put a virtuoso like Spike Lee in the director's seat and actors like Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley and Elizabeth Olsen in front of the camera, you've gone and got our attention. The lastest news has only further piqued our interest: Samuel L. Jackson has joined the cast.

After the failure of 'Miracle of St. Anna,' Spike Lee has been doing a lot of television and documentary work, which is a shame, because Lee is one of the great American directors. So we welcome his return to feature films with 'Red Hook Summer,' which not only brings him back to New York, but also to his character from 'Do the Right Thing.'
