With just under three weeks left until Oldboy hits theaters, FilmDistrict has released four new photos featuring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and director Spike Lee. The story centers on Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin), a man who was inexplicably imprisoned for 20 years and then let go. He then begins a mission to find the men who ruined his life. Check out the photos, then read on for details about a three-hour director's cut.
During a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, Josh Brolin revealed that Spike Lee has a three-hour director's cut which he prefers more than the 104-minute theatrical cut, because it is "quieter with more character-centric moments." When asked about his thoughts on the version fans will see in theaters this Thanksgiving, the actor offered a diplomatic response.
""I do have opinions, but it's better to bite my tongue."
Oldboy was released November 27th, 2013 and stars Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Hannah Simone, Hannah Ware, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli, Max Casella. The film is directed by Spike Lee.
