…But Seriously, The Oldboy Remake Looks Good
The below trailer is RedBand and intended for Mature Audiences. Please use discretion before viewing.
Yes, Oldboy is an absolute classic and yes a Hollywood remake seems fundamentally wrong but this seriously looks good. Stop looking at me like that it does.
While in Pre-Production Spike Lee talked about how his film would stay closer to the original Manga than the Park Chan-Wook adaptation but this trailer suggests that a few of the more iconic elements of the film might get a reference ie: Hallway fight. Having said that if Lee has convinced Josh Brolin to eat a live squid then I too will eat a live squid.
And anyways… if we didn’t have remakes we would have De Palma’s Scarface. Right? Right?
