New Oldboy Clip Puts The Spotlight On Elizabeth Olsen

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

Spike Lee's Oldboy Pushed Back A Month, To November 27

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.

Oldboy Teaser Poster Counts Down The Years

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

Spike Lee's Oldboy Set For October 2013 Release

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.

James Ransone Replaces Nate Parker In Spike Lee's Oldboy

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.
