First look at Sharlto Copley in Oldboy along with posters spanning 20 years worth of captivity

10.14.2013

We've seen plenty of Josh Brolin in Spike Lee's OLDBOY, so how about our first look at the film's central villain, Sharlto Copley?

FilmDistrict has shared this still of Copley with a brutal chest scar. His character Adrian Pryce is the companion to original villain, Woo-Jin Lee. The latest trailer that premiered during NYCC apparently ended with great applause. That must have been one damn good trailer.

Get a load of Copley's shirtless torso:

Included with the still of Copley was a cool set of posters that showed the span of twenty years worth of captivity. The first year is my particular favorite. You may not have warmed up to the idea of an American remake but you have to admit that these posters are kind of cool. Go ahead. We won't judge you.

20 years of OLDBOY:

OLDBOY hits theaters on November 27, 2013.

The more I see of this film, the more I am getting interested. I am still not convinced, but I thought the trailer was pretty good and this promotional material is great. Sharlto looks crazy here and I know he does crazy well, so I am sure he will be great. Spike Lee is still the biggest determent from this, but if I am convinced enough that he keeps his personal social/political commentary to himself and sticks to the story, then perhaps this will end up being as surprisingly good as the

These posters are great!

If it wasn't for these posters, I might've forgotten that Democrats are good and Republicans are bad.

Ya that's awesome and I like how they tried to make the pic of Brolin fit with the news clip. I like the Facebook one. But are they gonna try to put these up in a theater somewhere?

Also...

I will admit it, these new posters make up for that absolutely ridiculous first poster they released a couple of months back.

I have no clue whether the film will be any good, but I agree that really is a pretty cool poster campaign

Also going off of Justinvsky1's comment, I think Copley will become like the Michael Biehn or William Fichtner of our generation. He might not ever get the mainstream credit he deserves but will be an acclaimed genre actor that fans will adore for decades. Or if things pan out really right (still early to tell) I could possibly even see him faring even better and becoming sort of the Gary Oldman of his generation, i.e. an immensely critically acclaimed actor who has close ties to genre

Granted, Oldman's setting the bar pretty high though, so we shall see how things pan out.

I'm impressed!

I wonder if that scar has anything to do with Ji-woon Kim's scar in the original film. Sharlto looks incredible in that picture, and I'm very excited to see him taking on another twisted villain in this film, and maybe he'll be able to show his menace even more than his badass turn in Elysium!

I'm still not fully trusting of this remake, but they're doing their campaigns right, at least. That poster campaign is brilliant, though I do wonder if some people will be offended by 9/11/2001 and

That seems to be in slightly bad taste, but I don't care.

Very cool campaign, and it makes me a little less scared for this remake.

Why would someone be offended by those things? It's not making a statement on those things, simply saying the character has been locked away from the world for 20 years, and missed 20 years worth of events. When he gets out, the world's changed. The poster campaign is trying to choose the biggest event from the year that he missed and that influenced the country. 9/11 is an obvious one as it's been the most influential event to happen to America in the past 20 years. The Unabomber's fine with

The Unabomber's fine with me, as I can't really think of other huge stories that year. Simply mentioning that these events happened and that they impacted the nation, and in this instance, this person missed them, is not offensive. I could understand how you wouldn't want to be reminded of it if one of those events personally affected you, but to be offended? You'd have to be pretty fucking stupid. Just saying 9/11 isn't offensive. You would have obviously missed the point of the marketing, but even the point isn't offensive....sigh....

I hope the fucking '94 Vancouver Canucks team and their fans don't get offended when they see that poster

So... like I said, "I wonder if some people will be offended." And "slightly bad taste."

Geez. Need some fries to go with that salt?

And then why worry about it, if someone were offended by it, then they are stupid. The only somewhat valid point anyone could make about these posters, and this is vague, is that it's picking out bad things about the Republican Party and not the democratic. But that theory would probably be washed away if it wasn't for this director.
Anyway, I personally waste no time on wondering or worrying if stupid people will be offended by unoffensive things. Nor do I think mentioning tragedy is in bad

Anyway, I personally waste no time on wondering or worrying if stupid people will be offended by unoffensive things. Nor do I think mentioning tragedy is in bad taste. It's incredibly important events that have shaped our country the way it is today. To mention that is not in bad taste. To tell someone who wakes up from a two year coma, terrorists attacked the trade center and now we are at war, people of a certain color are looked at differently, there's more security, more suspicion. The world has changed from when you last knew it. That's not in bad taste. Worry about stupid people and people who make big deals out of nothing if you want.
Now go ahead...you can have the last word and make funny fast food lines or whatever.

That's actually a really cool poster campaign. I think Sharlto Copley will turn into one of the great actors of our generation. The only other actors I know that can become true chameleons are Daniel Day Lewis and Gary Oldman. I think Copley is on that same path.
