The long-awaited reinterpretation of Oldboy by Spike Lee, if only to find out just how faithful he’s going to be to the source material, comes out next week and in anticipation the film is getting one more new poster to help drum up interest. The poster revels in an explosion of violence that we should expect from the Oldboy via the protagonist’s weapon of choice, along with the tagline “Find the Truth and Make It Hurt” which overtly suggests we’re in for some brutal carnage.
Along with this poster, Spike Lee revealed a minor non-plot spoiler for his film during an interview with the New York Times revolving around the original film’s signature hallway fight sequence.
Check out the full poster here below and what Lee has to say about his film.
