FilmDistrict has released the CinemaCon teaser poster for Spike Lee‘s adaptation of Oldboy. Steve previously snapped a photo of the poster while at CinemaCon, but this is a high-quality version. For those unfamiliar with the story, it 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 hash marks on the poster are a clever and subtle way of showing the twenty years of captivity for Brolin’s character.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. Oldboy opens October 11th.
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.
