FilmDistrict released a new TV Spot for Spike Lee’s Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel Jackson, and James Ransone.
The spot promises that the twist will shock you to the core. Allegedly, for people who have seen the original, there’s some fresh goodies to boggle your minds…
In fact, according to Variety the crowd squirmed about in the AMC Lincoln Square theater from the graphic violence, but the film’s climactic twist moved many to audible discomfort.
“I’ve never been more shocked and surprised by an ending since maybe like The Sixth Sense,” said Elizabeth Olsen, who plays the film’s pivotal character. “No one spoiled it for me. No one hinted at it for me. And I got to experience it with just a blank canvas.”
In theaters November 27, Oldboy was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.
“Oldboy is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of Joe Doucette (Josh Brolin), a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason. When he is suddenly released without explanation, he begins an obsessive mission to find out who imprisoned him, only to discover that the real mystery is why he was set free.“
