If the following red band trailer is any indication, Spike Lee's take on "Oldboy" remains very faithful to Park Chan-wook's 2003 film. Josh Brolin plays the man who is mysteriously held captive for 20 years, then just as mysteriously released. Once he's free, he sets out on a quest to find his captor and wreak vengeance.
"Whoever you are, I will find you," Brolin snarls.
The trailer features quite a few recreated shots from the original, though Brolin has said the new version is a "reinterpretation" that will borrow from Park's vision as well as the original manga on which "Oldboy" is based. The filmmakers have also teased a "darker ending."
Along with Brolin, the "Oldboy" remake stars Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Imperioli, and Sharlto Copley. It hammers into theaters October 25.
