UPD: Trailer has been released can be viewed here
10 years have passed since release of the original and now it's time to have a look at first official poster for Hollywood's remake of Korean classic Oldboy.
You can see the actor Josh Brolin who will portray Min-sik Choi's charming character whom we all come to love so much from the original. I don't have high hopes for this, but Spike Lee can sometimes surprise with his moviemaking skills and it will definitely be interesting to see western take on such unusual and cruel story.
To be released in October, 2013.

Oldboy (Oldeuboi) probably is the most famous and well known Korean movie in the west, which has attract many new viewers to Asian cinema. It won many awards in Europe, including Grand Prix of the Jury at 57th Cannes Film Festival. As with many Asian films, currently there are plans for Hollywood remake to be directed by Spike Lee.
It's second movie in Chan-wook Park's so called Vengeance trilogy (movies are not connected by plot, only by theme, so viewing order is not important!).
Story follows man (played by brilliant Korean actor Choi Min-sik) who has been held captive in small apartment for 10 years, and reasons of this imprisonment are unknown to him. Once he is set free, he goes onto quest of vengeance to find his captors. Quite brutal, even shocking to some, yet beautiful movie.
A must see for any movie fan!
