'Oldboy' Preview Review

The film bows on Oct. 25

FilmDistrict has issued a red-band trailer for Spike Lee’s remake of “Oldboy,” starring Josh Brolin and Samuel L. Jackson.

Hitting theaters Oct. 25, “Oldboy” is based on the popular 2003 Korean thriller and co-stars Elisabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley (“District 9″).

The trailer not only shows how dark and violent the film will be but is also making it clear to fans of the original that this film will try its best to stay faithful to the original as well.

The original “Oldboy” included an incredible hallway fight between the films protagonist and more than a dozen bad guys and this film looks to have Brolin go through a similar scenario.

The remake has delivered a lot of good buzz ever since Spike Lee attached himself as a director and this trailer should only help build up the positive word of mouth.
