Oldboy Hits Blu-ray & DVD This March

Chris Savage

Oldboy BluraySpike Lee’s remake of Oldboy, didn’t exactly go down too well during its initial theatrical run. But, if you’re yet to see this one, then we have your back. The remake is scheduled to hit home video this March 4th via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, and we have all the details you need.

From the Press Release:

Academy Award® nominee Josh Brolin (Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008) stars as a troubled advertising executive who finds himself kidnapped and held in an inescapable room in the thriller OLDBOY, available on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD UltraViolet™ March 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

In this gritty tale of vengeance from critically-acclaimed director Spike Lee (Inside Man), Joe Doucette (Brolin) is abruptly kidnapped and framed for the murder of his wife. After being held hostage in solitary confinement for 20 years, Doucette is released without explanation and struggles to reacclimate himself until he crosses paths with a caring social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and sets out to find out who imprisoned him. The cast also includes Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Michael Imperioli (The Call), James Ransone (Red Hook Summer), and Pom Klementieff (Sleepless Nights).

Fans can explore the making of the film in two behind-the-scenes featurettes on the Blu-ray and DVD, including “The Making of Oldboy,” detailing the fight choreography in the film, and “Transformation,” taking fans on an in-depth exploration of Doucette’s character. The Blu-ray exclusively features alternate and extended scenes, a short promo spot including clips from the workout video in the film, and “Talking Heads,” an additional featurette providing overview of the OLDBOY story line.

OLDBOY has a run time of approximately 104 minutes and is rated R for strong brutal violence, disturbing images, some graphic sexuality, nudity, and language.

Special Features:

  • “The Making of Oldboy”
  • – “Transformation”
  • Alternate & Extended Scenes (Blu-ray only)
  • “Talking Heads” Featurette (Blu-ray only)
  • Workout Video Promo (Blu-ray only)

        Not surprised this sunk like a lead turd. Lee has only made about three decent films in my opinion and the rest is angry rhetoric.

        Remake sucks.

        ?? Just seen this came out 6th Dec in the UK, saw ZERO advertisment for it… Serious answers please; ignoring its a remake of a film that shouldn’t of been touched, is the film any good?
