Oldboy - Assembly Cut With 3 Hours Runtime
Whether the US remake of Oldboy makes sense or not will be a continuous topic of discussions among film fans and it's to be expected that these talks go on after the film is released. Spike Lee is the director and Josh Brolin stars alongside Elizabeth Olsen.
In an interview with LA Times, Brolin lets a remark slip that could raise eyebrows. He shares the info that the initial cut of the film had a runtime of 3 hours. Furthermore, he'd prefer it because it has a quieter build-up and adds more depth to the characters. Cutting films in order to spare time is a common practice. But the main actor speaking out against the theatrical version in an indirect way not so much. This shouldn't lower the scepticism that people have against the project but maybe it is a small hint that this longer version might end up on Blu-ray later on.
Oldboy starts in US cinemas on November 27th, 2013, while the UK will have to wait until December 6th, 2013.
