Josh Brolin prefers director's cut of Oldboy remake

And there's a new trailer too

Josh Brolin has been talking about the new Oldboy remake, and has suggested that he prefers Spike Lee’s director’s cut to the version that will hit cinemas.

The theatrical cut will clock in at around 104 minutes, but Lee has also created a three hour version, with Brolin suggesting that he prefers the latter to the former.

“I do have opinions,” says Brolin, “but it’s better to bite my tongue.” Top marks for Oldboy in-jokery there, Josh…

Meanwhile, the film hasreleased a new trailer online, in which director Spike Lee uses news broadcasts of various world events to ram home just how long lead character Joe (Josh Brolin) is imprisoned for.

The trailer picks up with Joe waking up in a strange hotel room, before showing him reacting to the likes of 9/11 and the election of President Obama, before eventually being released out of the blue.

Whereas the previous red-band trailer homed in on the film’s abundance of violent action, this latest effort does a better job of introducing the plot and fleshing out the lead characters.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



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

      I love the accent Copley uses in these trailers. Whether it's realistic or not, it's definitely unnerving!

      Why do I feel he's already apologising for this silly remake and subtly letting us know there is a better cut waiting to be released?

      Good trailer, shame they felt the need to include him catching Samuel L Jackson at the end, could have left that spoiler out.

      I'll admit this remake actually looks pretty good.

      My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do...... Rush64.COℳ
