FAVE: Oldboy (2013) Posters & Trailer

We know we're not the only ones who are deathly curious about the Spike Lee remake of Park Chan-wook's Oldboy. Call us pessimists, but we're not sure if anything could ever compare to the beautiful brutality of the original. Then again, the posters that have been released the past few weeks have been pretty badass.

Unfortunately, you can't base a film off of a poster (curse you, poster for Star Wars : Episode 1 ), but you CAN judge a trailer. Sort of. Well, we're going to and you can't stop us; so there. HA. Put on your own judge-y pants and check out the new red band trailer below. 

So, what do you think, Judgey McJudgerson? It looks rather on-point with the original, which makes us a bit wary. Apparently there will be some differences in the new movie, but so far that isn't apparent in this trailer. Which might be a good thing? Either way, we're anxious to see this Oldboy when it hits theatres this October. Don't let us down, Spike Lee.
