Josh Brolin Pops Out of the Box in ‘Oldboy’ Poster

FilmDistrict has at long last decided to let Josh Brolin out of the box together with a rear glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen in a new poster for Spike Lee‘s upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy.

The poster, which is an actual shot captured from the film, comes from the designing mind of Neil Kellerhouse who has provided artwork for recent films such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network whilst the handwritten title was provided by Mr. Brolin himself.

Along with the release of the new poster comes the news that we’ll also get to see a red band trailer in all its glory this Wednesday, July 10.

As soon as the trailer hits the net we’ll be sure to share it with you. Oldboy is released in the US this October 25 whilst we’ll be able to catch the film here in the UK from December 6. In the meantime we’ll leave you with the aforementioned poster and plot synopsis.

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 illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
