Oldboy Featurette. Spike Lee‘s Oldboy (2013) movie featurette stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson. OldBoy‘s plot synopsis: a remake of Park Chan-wook‘s classic film, ”OLDBOY follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive.

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. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.”

On some of the material exposed in the featurette:

Josh Brolin says he spent three days in solitary confinement to prep for Oldboy. That’s pretty serious stuff. He doesn’t make the mistake of thinking that it really gave him the mindset of Joe Doucette, the character he plays who is imprisoned for 20 years for reasons unknown. But it does represent a level of commitment to the film.
