Most fans of acclaimed Korean director Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy knew that a Spike Lee/Hollywood remake wasn’t going to be very successful. However, no one knew that it would be THIS unsuccessful.
It appears that American audiences just weren’t interested in seeing this remake in theaters. It’s possible the film does better in DVD sales, but to rank behind films like Top Gun 3D and The Wizard of Oz 3D is embarrassing, to say the least.
