Director Spike Lee’s American adaptation of Park Chan-wook’s classic 2003 manga comic film Oldboy will be released around Halloween on October 25, two weeks later than originally planned.
Director Spike Lee’s Oldboy will battle less competition with its new release date.
The Summer of Sam filmmaker’s American adaptation of South Korean helmer Park Chan-wook’s iconic 2003 thriller was originally set to hit theatres on October 11.
According to Cinema Blend the feature will now reach audiences just before Halloween on October 25.
Originally Oldboy would have met stiff competition the weekend of October 11. Tom Hanks-led biographical drama Captain Phillips is released at that time and so is paranormal thriller Haunt, a feature overseen by District 9 producers Carolynne Cunningham and Bill Block.
On October 25 Oldboy will have to contend with Paranormal Activity 5, a found footage horror franchise instalment that stars Demi Lovato.
Oldboy tells the story of a man who has been kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years before being released and discovering he needs to find his captor in five days.
It is based on the Japanese manga written by Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya.
Spike’s movie stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen and Samuel L. Jackson.
