Just before its premiere at the 71st International Cannes Film Festival, Spike Lee’s latest film released its first trailer. Produced by Jordan Peele, BlacKkKlansman stars John David Washington (Ballers), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Topher Grace (That ’70s Show) as KKK leader David Duke.
Every week countless trailers go unnoticed or unreported. Trailer’s are an art form in itself, and can be just as entertaining, if not sometimes more, than the actual films, so they deserve their own recognition. That’s why every week we sort through them for you guys, and put the ones we feel you should watch here in our Trailer Roundup.
Oldboy; Back in 2003 South Korean Director Park Chan-wook released one of the more screwed up movies I’ve seen, and most of it was awesome. Well now, 10 years later it’s getting the old American Remake treatment from none other than the often controversial lightning rod Spike Lee. This time around Josh Brolin will be in the lead role, and from the looks of this first trailer, things are already a little different than I remember.
As we learned from FilmDrunk, Josh Brolin has been cast to play the lead in Spike Lee’s remake of the 2003 South Korean film Oldboy by director Park Chan-wook.
The original movie won the ‘Gran Prix of the Jury’ at Cannes in 2004, and therefore has some big shoes to fill.
We have also talked about it here before, but I’ve included the trailer for you again.
