Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy will open in theaters on October 25th and the first trailer is expected to be released later this week. Ahead of the release, we have a look at the official Oldboy poster. According to FilmDistrict, the image used in the poster is an actual scene from the movie and not a composite. We'll get a better idea of the style of the movie and how it compares to the original when the red band trailer makes its premiere on Friday.

“OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of 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 was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.”
