Oldboy remake pushed back until November

Spike Lee's Oldboy remake has been delayed by around a month, with the crime thriller now set to arrive in US screens at the end of November.

The film had initially been slated to arrive on 25 October, but will now open in the US on 27 November, in order to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday.

At present, genre competition looks few and far between on that date, with Disney's animated adventure Frozen the major release over the holiday weekend.

The film stars Josh Brolin as an advertising executive who is kidnapped and imprisoned for twenty years, with no explanation given for why. Released out of the blue, he embarks upon a mission of revenge against his mysterious captors.

Directed by Lee and co-starring Sharlto Copley, Elizabeth Olsen and Michael Imperioli, Oldboy has yet to receive a UK release date, but expect it to arrive shortly after its US debut…
