Watch out, these movies will haunt you...
If you've been tuning in each week to watch Elizabeth Olsen, you might want to check out some of her other work as well.
That Oldboy ending still has me shook 17 years later.
These remakes had no business ever being green lit to begin with.
Try these if you are not in the mood to "Shudder..."
I'll be recapping the highs and lows of the movie business experienced over the past 12 months. 2013 has been a pretty fascinating time for film, full of reversals of fortune, dizzying successes and even some truly polarizing pictures. So let's look back and GIF out!
While my anticipation for Spike Lee’s upcoming Oldboy remake is just slightly higher than my anticipation for his Kickstarted Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, I really have to give it to the guys creating the film’s posters.
I’m no Oldboy purist. And if a studio wanted to bankroll an Oldboy remake, I can absolutely see handing it to Spike Lee, who has dabbled in dark, violent genre films from time to time.
This latest featurette appeals to those who crave a mesmerizing performance, by showing all the work Oldboy star Josh Brolin had to do behind the scenes to go from schlubby mess of a man to a lean and mean man on a mission.
Spike Lee's Oldboy remake may look alarmingly similar to the Korean original. It may require its own screenwriter to defend its existence in front of a Comic Con crowd. But if the movie has anything going for it over the 2003 Park Chan-wook original, it's Elizabeth Olsen. And good for them for recognizing that and highlighting her in this newly released clip
The film begins as a man named Joe Doucett (Brolin) is kidnapped and held prisoner for two decades. One day he wakes up in a trunk outside and discovers that he has been released, which leads him on not only a mission of revenge against the person responsible for his kidnapping, but also a mission to discover why he was imprisoned in the first place.
What does it mean when a film changes release date? Nothing, and everything, depending on how you look at it and what that change is. So you can choose to read nothing into the fact that Spike Lee's Oldboy has changed release dates from a planned October 25 bow to November 27, a full month-long switch that puts Oldboy in the thick of some serious competition.

That's Brolin climbing out of the trunk, looking mighty clean-cut and purposeful for someone who has just broken out of a 20-year solitary confinement. And we assume that's Elizabeth Olsen standing in the background, holding a yellow umbrella with the hash marks that have been part of the marketing from the very beginning-- Olsen plays the young woman who helps Brolin's character in his quest to find out why he was imprisoned
It's about time we got a proper poster or some stills or a teaser trailer. Right? Just give us Samuel L. Jackson scowling and saying something ominous, and we'll be good...for a bit.

The key to a good teaser poster is to give only a hint of what you've got in store. When you're bringing a remake or a sequel, that hint can be incredibly small, just a quick tip of the hat to fans and a placeholder for what's to come. That's exactly the tactic for this teaser poster for Oldboy, Spike Lee's remake of the modern Korean classic that's coming to theaters on October 11. Those hash marks add up to 20
It’s a four hour drive to get from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada, a trip that’s composed entirely of long stretches of highway that extend through the deserts of the south west. And once again we have braved the heat and the sand paving the way to this year’s CinemaCon.
With Spike Lee's remake of the Korean revenge classic Oldboy going into production, we've still got plenty of questions about how his take on the material will compare to Park Chan-wook's original-- and we're confident that, no matter what Lee does, some fanboys out there will just hate it regardless. But now all those fans will at least know how much time they have to sharpen their knives

What's bad news for Parker is good news for James Ransone, who will take his place in the chilling remake. Like Parker, Ransone has worked with Lee before, first on 2006's Inside Man, and most recently on Red Hook Summer. To date, Ransone might be most recognizable from his various roles on HBO series like The Wire, but he can currently be seen in theaters as the eager investigator dubbed Deputy So-and-So in Scott Derrickson's latest horror thriller Sinister.

"It's not trying to redo the [Chan-wook's] film – it's coming at it from a different point of view. As well as focusing on the primary source of the Korean film, for our film there's also the Japanese Manga, so we're using the primary source of the illustrated novel, really."
