[SDCC ’13] “OLDBOY” Banner Shows you who to Look Out For


At San Diego Comic-Con? Maybe you’ll find out what’s up with umbrella lady in Spike Lee’s OLDBOY redo.

FilmDistrict announced today that OLDBOY will have a bit of a presence out here in San Diego: “Our Hotel Escorts are waiting to serve you.” Hopefully not in a lock you up for 20 years kind of way.

OLDBOY follows an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre  and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.  Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor).

The film is out October 25.
