‘Oldboy’, Spike Lee’s remake of the South Korean film, releases a new clip


South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook’s 2005 film Oldboy is well-regarded amongst the international film community, enough so that many were wary when news was released that Hollywood was looking into remaking the film. Interest in the remake was raised, however, with the official confirmation that Malcolm X and Inside Man helmer Spike Lee would be heading up the project. Working from a script by Mark Protosevich, Lee directs a cast that includes Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli, and Hannah Simone. A new clip from the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

About Deepayan Sengupta

There was once a time when I thought Scarface was the best movie ever made, and Home Improvement was appointment television for me. While I still have a soft spot for both, those days of naivete are long behind me, as I’ve subsequently managed to broaden my horizons. Ambition is the most important part of a movie for me; if it tries to do something unique, tell a well-worn story in a different way, or take on large themes in a honest manner, I can forgive many flaws. If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
