We’ve already seen one very simple poster for Oldboy, the American remake of South Korean director Chan-wook Park’s 2003 movie of the same name that’s being made by Spike Lee.
Now comes a more official poster for the movie featuring the film’s star, Josh Brolin, getting out of a case. The movie tells the story of a man who is inexplicably kidnapped and held prisoner for 20 years before finally being released…still with no explanation. After his release, which is what’s happening in the image above and on the poster below (the image on the poster is said to be an actual shot from the movie, not a shot specifically created for the poster), he sets off on a mission to find those responsible for his captivity, and why they did it.
Oldboy also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel L. Jackson. It’s currently scheduled for release on October 25, 2013.
In addition to this being an actual shot from the movie, another cool thing about the poster is that the title is written in Josh Brolin’s own handwriting, the handwriting that his character uses to write letters to his daughter while in captivity.
