With an absolutely stellar leading cast, topped by Josh Brolin, we got our first glimpse at the film with a teaser poster back in the spring. And now Yahoo Movies have released the first theatrical poster, with the first red-band trailer set to drop tomorrow.
An advertising executive 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 and ultimately to an illusive man who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
Brolin is joined by Sharlto Copley, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Portnow, Michael Imperioli, Lance Riddick, Max Casella, James Ransone, and Hannah Ware.
Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) penned the script from which Lee is directing, based on the original manga of the same name by Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi.
Oldboy will be released in US on October 25th, and has its UK release date set for a little later on 6th December. Whilst we eagerly await the first trailer tomorrow, here’s the first full poster, which you can click through to enlarge.
