Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' remake pushed back to November

We’ll have to wait a little longer to see how Spike Lee has reimagined Park Chan-wook’s 2003 thriller.

FilmDistrict has shifted the film’s release date for the second time. Originally, Oldboy 2.0 was scheduled to open Oct. 11. But in May, the distributor changed the release date to Oct. 25 — and now it’s been pushed back once more, to the much more crowded date of Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving.

Only two other movies are currently scheduled to open in wide release on Oct. 25: The Counselor, starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, and Javier Bardem, and Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Now that it’s been delayed a month, though, Oldboy will be competing against three wide releases (Black Nativity, Frozen, and Homefront), as well as the limited releases Grace of Monaco and Out of the Furnace. TWC’s Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is scheduled for release Nov. 29 as well.

Oldboy follows an ad exec (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held in solitary confinement for 20 years. When he’s finally released, he seeks vengeance — only to find himself still entangled in a conspiracy. Check out the red-band trailer below.

Coming to America: South Korea's top directors on hitting Hollywood with English language films -- EXCLUSIVE

There’s a scene in South Korean director Park Chan-wook’s 2003 revenge classic Oldboy, currently being remade by Spike Lee, in which the film’s wild-haired, wild-eyed lead Min-sik Choi plops down at a restaurant and slurps on a huge fidgety live octopus, its long tentacles squirming out of his mouth. To American audiences, the moment may seem totally strange. But Park says the scene is less disgusting to Korean audiences. “They would be able to sympathize with the protagonist at that stage, who was incarcerated for 14 years,” he told EW. “He wants to eat something that is alive and moving. By chewing on this living thing, he’s venting his anger to an unknown protagonist.”

'Stoker' soundtrack premiere of Emily Wells track 'Becomes the Color' -- EXCLUSIVE LISTEN!

In South Korean Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s upcoming first English language movie Stoker, out March 1, Nicole Kidman throws eye daggers as the unloving mother of a budding, brown-haired Mia Wasikowska. The family thriller, itself, is awash in blue-tinged darkness.

In keeping with Stoker‘s intense vibe, check out this exclusive track, “Becomes the Color,” by classical-hip-hop-electronic hybrid violinist and singer Emily Wells from the film’s soundtrack, out on Milan Records on Feb. 26. “I became the color, I became the daughter and the son, when the feast is over,” sing-raps Wells, who was hand-picked by Park for the film, in a ghostly voice behind a skittering mix of keyboard blips, floating electronic melodies and a steady drum beat. The soundtrack also includes a score by Clint Mansell (Black Swan) and original pieces by experimental composer Philip Glass.
