FilmDistrict has released the first clip from Spike Lee’s Oldboy.  The story centers on Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin), a 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 clip does a good job of showing off Brolin’s intensity, and I look forward to see how it plays out beyond threatening Elizabeth Olsen’s character.  There’s also some new footage of Joe devouring dumplings as way to find a restaurant that could lead him to his captor.  This has inspired FilmDistrict to run a promotion where people should go to their local dim sum spot and tag a photo with #eattheclues for a chance to win the original hammer from the movie (how they’ll prove this is the real hammer and not something from Home Depot is beyond me).  I say the winner should be someone who goes to a restaurant, puts a live squid in his or her mouth, and sends in that photo.

Hit the jump to check out the clip and the additional footage.  The film also stars Sharlto Copley and Samuel L. JacksonOldboy opens November 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Oldboy:

OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. 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.
