First Look at the Poster for Oldboy, Starring Josh Brolin
July 8, 2013
We've got your first look at the poster for Oldboy, coming to theaters on October 25. The poster is a shot from the film and is a nod to the Red Band trailer, which will come online on Wednesday. Neil Kellerhouse designed the poster and the title treatment is Josh Brolin's real handwriting, as inspired by the handwritten letters his character writes to his daughter in the film.
Oldboy is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. 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.
Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, Oldboy was directed by Spike Lee from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.
