Oldboy Red Band Trailer: It's Got Potential?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When the Oldboy poster was released the other day, all it did was fan the flames of "will this remake do justice to the original?"

With the Oldboy red band trailer out today, the answer is a strong... maybe. 

While it doesn't look as disastrous as it could have been, a lot of remakes are, at first glance it doesn't have the same feel as the original.

Perhaps it's the lighting or the way the action plays out. It might be nothing more than the fact it's in English, it just doesn't seem the same.

I will give Josh Brolin this, I buy him as the main character. Didn't think I would, but this trailer changed my mind.

We have until October 25th to discuss this ad nauseam, so for now we'll just leave it as, it has potential.
