Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' to Hit Theaters in October 2013
The remake of Park Chan-wook's 2003 South Korean box-office hit stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel L. Jackson.
FilmDistrict will release Spike Lee's Oldboy, a remake of the 2003 South Korean blockbuster, on Oct. 11, 2013.
Oldboy, headlining Josh Brolin as an advertising executive who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement for unknown reasons, also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel L. Jackson.
When the ad executive is released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment, only to find that he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
As of now, the movie has the weekend to itself.
The South Korean film, directed by Park Chan-wook, won the Grand Prix at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. It grossed north of $14 million worldwide.
