Trailer - Old Boy
Chan-Wook Park's 2003 Korean action thriller Old Boy is one of the most intense movies we have ever seen. It is one of the most twisted movies we have ever seen. It is one of the most violent movies we have ever seen. And it is one of the best movies we have ever seen. In true Hollywood fashion, it is being remade for an American audience (unoriginal bastards that they are). Normally we'd bitch and moan, and then go out of our way to avoid watching it. However, it is being directed by our man Spike Lee...which intrigued us immensely. Second, it stars Josh Brolin and Samuel L. Jackson, which further intrigued us. Then we watched the above Red Band trailer, and our fears of a shitty remake have been quelled further still. However, check your surroundings before watching...NSFW. You've been warned. Drops in October.
