The American remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 thriller Oldboy is nigh. A trailer premiered on Yahoo! today, revealing Josh Brolin in tighty-whities (yay!) and the fact that he has been imprisoned for 20 years (boo!).
Joe Doucett (Brolin) is locked in a solitary room for two decades, his name besmirched as he is accused of murdering the mother of his daughter. When he is inexplicably released, his life becomes dedicated to revenge and solving the mystery of the last 20 years — why was he imprisoned, and why was he let go?
Check out the NSFW trailer here:
See Oldboy in theaters October 25, and you can assess how much it deviates from the original.
