Here’s four impressive but unused posters for Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’



Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-wook’s classic Oldoby is due for release in US cinemas on 25th October, but we are yet to see anything from the film. All there has been so far is a simple, but effective teaser poster which I have included as the last image in this post.

However, revealed yesterday were four “key art explorations”  created by artist Juan Luis Garcia (via Movielicious) for the film that went unused. The four posters can be seen below, and I must admit that the first and last posters are very effective. The second poster has its charms, and the third poster hints at the madness of the story, but it is a shame that non of these posters will actually get used.

Spike Lee will direct the remake which is based on Park Chan-wook’s second film in his superb ‘Vengeance Trilogy’ (starting with Sympathy For Mr Vengeance and ending with Lady Vengeance). The cast includes Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson and Sharlto Copley.

Oldboy arrives in US cinemas 25th October.


OLDBOY follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive.  When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an elusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
