Josh Brolin & Sharlto Copley Highlighted In New Clip From Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’

FilmDistrict has revealed this new “Last Call For Alcohol” clip from Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy.’ Arriving in cinemas on November 27th in the US and December 6th in the UK, the upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook’s cult classic stars the likes of Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley, James Ransone, Lance Reddick, and Michael Imperioli. The original ‘Oldboy,’ released in 2003, won the much coveted Grand Prize Jury Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. The film is based on Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi’s 90′s manga series.

Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’ follows Josh Brolin’s character, Joe (Dae-su Oh in the original), a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughters birthday. For twenty years he is held captive, and upon his release must begin his journey to find the reason for his imprisonment. He soon finds out that his kidnapper has plans for him more tortuous than his solitary confinement. Sharlto Copley plays a mysterious billionaire out to destroy Joe’s life, while Elizabeth Olsen plays Marie, a caseworker who helps Joe investigate the past. Samuel L. Jackson plays the head of the motel where Brolin’s character has been held hostage.
