Oldboy: news and videos

Oldboy may be one of the biggest bombs in recent history

Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy has been pretty much universally panned across the board. Some of this might be simply because the original never needed to be remade, but it's also because the movie just isn't that good. It seems the lack...

New Oldboy trailer comes complete with images

We have another Oldboy remake trailer here and its not showing us too much new, but it's green band so it has way less blood. While Alec is most likely correct in thinking the film is almost totally pointless I can't help but want to ...

NYCC Interview: The screenwriter and stars of Oldboy

Spike Lee's upcoming remake of Oldboy has drawn many strong opinions from our staff. While it's one of our most anticipated films of the holiday season, it's also a movie that makes us question how a remake can negatively affect the origina...

Flixist's NYCC 2013 Wrap-Up: Saturday, October 12

So, Matt, Hubert, and I are at this year's New York Comic-Con. We were planning on telling you earlier, but the internet at the Javitz Center is terrible at best, so it didn't happen. But we're going to be there again today, so if you're o...

These Oldboy images remind you there's another Oldboy

Spike Lee's upcoming remake of Oldboy has sparked lots of controversy within the Flixist staff. Some utterly oppose the idea, some welcome the new look, and I, well I haven't seen the original. I want to go into the film with a fresh perspe...

Spike Lee's Oldboy remake delayed until November

While Spike Lee is having enough trouble getting folks to donate to his $1.25 million dollar Kickstarter to reboot Vampire in Brooklyn (If you donate 10,000 like Steven Soderbergh, then you'll get to watch a New York Knickerbockers game wit...

Trailer Round-up: Some Older Gentleman

The biggest trailer of the week is arguably the Red Band trailer for Spike Lee's Oldboy remake (I say arguably because I'm personally more interested in Saving Mr. Banks). Folks on the site are still arguing about it (I've never seen more t...

First Oldboy remake trailer looks exactly like Oldboy

So here it is. The long awaited (ha!) trailer for Spike Lee's unnecessary remake of Oldboy. It's two and a half minutes of Josh Brolin putting on his best Choi Min-Sik impression, and it's every bit as dumb as everybody expected. Seriously...

First official poster for Spike Lee's Oldboy is sketchy

As we get closer to Oldboy's October release date, more and more information will begin to trickle across our monitors, like official production images, trailers, posters, and what Spike Lee was thinking when he thought it'd be a good idea ...

First pics from the set of Spike Lee's Oldboy remake

I guess I should come right out and let you guys know that these pics are pretty dull. It's mostly just Josh Brolin and Spike Lee standing around and it's hard to decipher the context of what's going on. What scene is being filmed? Does Jos...

Spike Lee's Oldboy is picked up by FilmDistrict

First off, if you haven't seen Chan-wook Park's Oldboy, you better get the f**k up and go watch it at least a dozen times. Only then will anything to do with Spike Lee's remake have any relevance to you. Only then will you realize that we a...

Spike Lee's Oldboy remake delayed, rejected by Clive Owen

Spike Lee's remake of the seminal South Korean thriller Oldboy for Mandate Pictures has been delayed due to star Josh Brolin's commitments to Men In Black 3, which is at least one reason to be thankful for that movie's existence. The Americ...

Oldboy remake to feature new characters, "darker" ending

Just to be clear: I'm not looking forward to the remake of Oldboy. I am generally conflicted about American remakes of good foreign films, but the original Oldboy is very near and dear to my heart. It's one of my favorite (Korean ...

Oldboy remake back on track?

I thought we had dodged a bullet when the proposed remake of Oldboy fell through. Oldboy is one of those fantastic, messed-up films that will lose something in the translation to American audiences. Granted, th...
