Some new images from director Spike Lee’s Oldboy have made their way online. Based on Park Chan-wook’s 2003 thriller of the same name, the story 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 first red-band trailer showed that Lee isn’t holding back when it comes to the brutality of the film, and he also looks to have crafted an interesting take of his own on the familiar story. These new images don’t give away much, but we do see Brolin’s character looking very Howard Hughes-esque while in captivity.
Hit the jump to get a look at the new images. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Lance Reddick, Michael Imperioli, and James Ransone. Oldboy opens in theaters on November 27th.
