A new featurette for the upcoming Spike Lee-directed “Oldboy,” starring Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson and Elizabeth Olsen, promises that the highly-anticipated remake of a 2003 Korean film will be an intense and violent ride.
Brolin stars as a man who is kidnapped and held in solitary confinement for 20 years, only to be released with no idea why he was taken in the first place or why he was let go. He then goes about trying to figure it all out. With hammers.

Brolin said he had a hard time researching the role, since there’s really no way to know what it would be like to be imprisoned for 20 years in solitary confinement with no idea when or if he was getting out.
“Anything goes. It’s just wide open. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve ever done.”
“Oldboy” hits theaters Nov. 27.
