The humble hammer has been surprisingly underused as a weapon on the big screen — particularly when compared to the knife, the chainsaw, and that upstart, the nail gun. But this may all change on November 27, when the Spike Lee-directed, Josh Brolin-starring Oldboy hits cinemas.
We’ll say no more plot-wise (although those who have seen filmmaker Chan-wook Park’s original mystery-thriller will have a good idea what we’re getting at). On the other hand, we can say that Oldboy cast members Michael Imperioli and Pom Klementieff and the film’s screenwriter Mark Protosevich will be attending the New York Comic-Con panel for Lee’s movie which is taking place at 6pm and is moderated by yours truly.
To commemorate the event, the Oldboy folks have released a new poster which NYCC attendees can pick up at the Dark Horse Comics booth, but which you can exclusively check out above.
