Thu Jul 11 2013
Contain yourselves: Here is the first trailer for Spike Lee's take on Park Chan-wook’s 2003 cult-classic thriller, Oldboy. The remake, which hits theaters this fall, stars Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and Michael Imperioli. The brand-new trailer sees Lee's version staying pretty faithful to his predecessor, with lots of stylized violence, the vengeful protagonist's same witchy mop of hair and even the infamous hammer.

Oldboy is out on October 25.
