Hammers, Hallway Fights And Mysterious Femme Fatales: Spike Lee's Oldboy Trailer Has It All

As any good fan of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 vengeance classic Oldboy, I was skeptical when I heard there would be an American remake. But when it comes to dirty deeds and simmering tension, you could do worse than Spike Lee. In addition, the cast, featuring Josh Brolin as our mysterious prisoner and Elizabeth Olsen as his equally mysterious partner, is top notch. And, hell, the trailer looks fantastic. I think even the snobbiest among us will be satisfied. My only complaint? Needs more tentacles.

P.S. If you could manage to keep any and all discussion spoiler free, that would be most generous to folks who haven’t seen the original. Cheers.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
