Hotel ‘Oldboy’ and Samuel L. Jackson Welcome You in New Video
Director Spike Lee adapts the South Korean original for a brutal re-imagining centered around the ‘Labor Day’ star. Brolin plays an ad exec who’s abruptly kidnapped and locked away in an isolated room, where he stays in captivity for 20 years. Upon release, he obsessively tries to find the ones responsible.
One of them, it’s safe to assume, is Jackson’s kimono-wearing Chaney, who suggests in the video (above) that Brolin wasn’t the first and probably won’t be the last to stay at his hotel. However, as the tagline of the film states, “Ask not why you were imprisoned, ask why you were set free.”
‘Oldboy’ also stars the up-and-coming starlet Elizabeth Olsen, soon to be seen in ‘Godzilla,’ ‘Kill Your Darlings,’ ‘Therese’ and possibly ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ Sharlto Copely, the man who arguably kept ‘Elysium’ afloat, is also featured.
Prepare your stay at Hotel ‘Oldboy’ when the film hits theaters November 27.
