Days after we got the visceral-looking Oldboy poster from director Spike Lee, the filmmaker has delivered the red band trailer for the thriller. The story follows a man who was kidnapped after being framed for his wife’s murder. Josh Brolin plays the former advertising executive, who, as we see in the teaser, is kept in a room and haunted with visual images on a TV that include current events and home-looking movies about his daughter growing up without him.
When Brolin is inexplicably released, he embarks on a journey of vengeance for his lost decades, while simultaneously trying to make up with his daughter and clear his name. Along the way, he enlists the help of Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley (soon to be seen in Elysium). And as we see from the Oldboy trailer for the film due October 25, Samuel L. Jackson is one nasty fellow.
