Trailer: Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’

It looks good, just like the poster, but strangely enough my reaction to the trailer shows how difficult doing an American remake of ‘Oldboy’ actually is.

The trailer looks like the exact same movie as Park Chan-wook’s 2003 masterpiece — even down to the hammer hallway fight scene. And so, if you bring nothing new to the party why would I want to invite you in? At the same time, if it were radically divergent then I would probably be complaining about that too. #Sigh
