Brilliant new Oldboy banner arrives: Comic-Con 2013

When it rains it pours

Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake has debuted a stylish new banner at Comic-Con, featuring a lone girl stood below an umbrella in the pouring rain.

Sadly, the film doesn’t have a panel at this year’s fest, but at least this new poster gives us a taste of what to expect from the completed film.

Just who that girl is revealed to be remains to be seen, but we’d hazard a guess at Elizabeth Olsen’s young social worker, with whom Josh Brolin’s protagonist finds himself forming a bond.

Brolin will play a man suddenly and unexpectedly released from long-term captivity, desperate to learn who locked him up in the first place and why they have now chosen to let him go.

Directed by Lee and co-starring Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Imperioli, Oldboy will open in the UK on 6 December 2013.

What do you think of the new banner? Tell us, below!

      I like the kind of imagery they are using to promote this film. I never read/watched the original, so I'm not sure what to expect, but suffice to say this doesn't quite align with the picture that was painted for me of Oldboy before. That intrigues me.
