Spike Lee’s OLDBOY Pushed Back to November 27th

Director Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy will now hit theaters a month later than originally planned.  Initially scheduled to open on October 11th and then subsequently pushed back to October 25th, FilmDistrict will now release Oldboy wide on November 27th.  The reason for the delay is unknown, but the Thanksgiving holiday offers very little serious genre competition for the pic, as it now squares off against Disney’s animated film Frozen, the musical Black Nativity, and the Jason Statham action-thriller Homefront.  The first red-band trailer for Oldboy was incredibly impressive and I was really looking forward to seeing what Lee had up his sleeve, so it’s unfortunate that we have to wait even longer to see the full film.  That being said, I’d be surprised if Oldboy didn’t pop up at one of the major film festivals earlier in the fall.

For those unaware, Oldboy centers on a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped for mysterious reasons, and is released twenty years later with no explanation.  Once free, he goes on a mission to find his captor and take revenge.  The film also stars Elizabeth OlsenSharlto CopleyLance ReddickMichael Imperioli, and James Ransone.
