It’s Hammer Time Again in New Oldboy Remake Trailer



There’s a new poster too. Visually, this looks unlike anything else Spike Lee’s ever done – and for once, Samuel L. Jackson is not the baddest mofo in the footage.

It’s a red band trailer, so there’s nudity and graphic hammer-claw action. There also appear to be just enough plot changes to keep me intrigued. Can’t imagine it’ll go all the places the Korean movie did, but for Hollywood it looks ballsy, anyway.

Watch after the jump.
