Oldboy release pushed back a month

Spike Lee's remake of action thriller Oldboy has been set back a month for release.

The film stars Josh Brolin in a remake of Chanwook Park's South Korean revenge thriller classic and will now open on November 27 instead of October 25, said The Wrap.

Josh stars alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Imperioli, Lance Reddick, Max Casella, Rami Malek and James Ransone.

Oldboy sees Josh's character Joe held captive in a motel room for 20 years and when he is released, he has just a few days to find out who kidnapped him and why.

The film will now open at the same time as Idris Elba's Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and Grace Of Monaco which stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly.

Other big releases on the same weekend are Disney animation Frozen, musical Black Nativity and James Franco's action thriller Homefront.
