New ‘Oldboy’ Poster has a Warming Center


The following new poster for Spike Lee‘s Oldboy (FilmDistrict; 11/27) remake just premiered in conjunction with the New York Comic Con and while I like it, I couldn’t help but make a few alterations and offer up an alternative version that I would rather see hanging on my wall rather than the option the studio chose to go with.

Have a look below and tell me which one you prefer.



Oldboy follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find 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 (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
