Spike Lee’s Oldboy Pushed Back a Month

FilmDistrict has pushed back Spike Lee’s Oldboy from an October 25 release to Wednesday, November 27. Other wide releases scheduled for that date include Black Nativity, Frozen and Homefront.

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.

Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, James Ransone and Samuel L. Jackson co-star in the R-rated film. You can watch the previously-released Red Band trailer below.
