‘Oldboy’ Trailer: Josh Brolin Hammers Out Some Revenge [NSFW]

On the heels of the recently revealed poster for Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy‘ comes the red-band trailer, featuring a couple of great violent moments and a little sexiness, too.

The film tells the story of a man named Joe, who is imprisoned for several years by someone mysterious — someone who has his own evil, enigmatic machinations. As it turns out, Joe’s wife has been murdered and his daughter has turned against him. And then one day, after years of confinement, Joe is set free and begins the search for the man who took his life away so he can claim his revenge.

Those who doubted the viability of a remake of Park Chan-wook‘s South Korean revenge classic might whistle a different tune after viewing the trailer, courtesy of Yahoo Movies. Lee seems to be keeping the tone intact, and the visual style is an interesting blend of Lee’s own stark contrasts with Chan-wook’s darkly vibrant palette.

It’s unclear whether Lee is hewing strictly to the story Chan-wook told (based on a Japanese manga), which included one particularly sinister plot twist in the third act and one hell of a stomach-churning conclusion. Regardless, we can’t wait to see what Lee has in store for his own version, and at least he kept that hammer.

‘Oldboy’ stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli and Samuel L. Jackson, and hits theaters on Oct. 25.
