After releasing the poster earlier in the week, the first trailer for Spike Lee's Oldboy has hit the internet. The film is a remake of Park Chan-wook's 2003 Korean film of the same name which has become a cult classic, putting this remake under extreme scrutiny right away. Anyone familiar with the original will be intrigued to see what Lee, a very different filmmaker to Park, can do with the material and those who have never seen it are in for one of cinema's best mysteries. 

Oldboy follows an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is eventually released, without any clue as to who his captors are or their motives, he embarks on an obsessive mission to find those responsible.

The film opens in October, check out the official red band trailer below...
