The first red band trailer for Spike Lee’s Oldboy went online today, giving fans of the original Korean film and Japanese manga a first look at the American remake/adaptation. The trailer’s kind of NSFW, and definitely not meant for anyone under 17.
It will still never be able to be as good...
That's how practically all remakes/adaptations/etc. end up, unfortunately. Then again, it would be unfair for us to anticipate this being a classic (again).
You´re correct. This remake needs to be watched, and enjoyed for what it is, which is a remake of a masterpiece. It can´t be as good, yet it might be a good "adaptation" afterall.
