Latest Oldboy viral documents 20 years of captivity as history passes by

We're still more than a month and a half away from seeing Spike Lee's remake of OLDBOY roll out into theaters and that gives us plenty of time to reflect on the last 20 years with this latest OLDBOY viral which looks back at the last two decades in history via a new Tumblr site. In the film, Josh Brolin's Joe Doucett spends 20 years in captivity, missing out on some of the biggest historical events ever. I can't even wrap my head around that. I spent 2 years imprisoned in my first marriage where I barely escaped with my sanity, but at least I got to watch the news from time to time when she let me out of my cage.

OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.

OLDBOY will star Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel Jackson, Bruce Hornsby, and James Ransone and was directed by Spike Lee from a script by Mark Protosevich. The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison, and Nathan Kahane. Look for it in theaters on November 27, 2013.
