PARK CHAN-WOOK’s restored and remastered masterpiece ‘OLD BOY’ to be released in theatres AUGUST 16 celebrating its 20th anniversary
By Oliver Carnay
I got an invitation last Monday (July 17) from the Publicist of Neon to watch the newly restored and remastered “Old Boy,” coming to theatres AUGUST 16th, in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
I’ve never been to the Alamo Drafthouse theatre house in downtown Los Angeles and it’s such a cool theatre with dining amenities while you watch your film.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Park Chan-wook’s cinematic masterpiece, OLD BOY will be released in theatres, restored and remastered in stunning 4K. After being mysteriously kidnapped and imprisoned with no human contact for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su (Choi Min-Sik) is suddenly released without any explanation. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, he has only five days to retrace his past, track down his captors, and get his revenge.
OLD BOY, which remains a cult classic and has served as inspiration for auteurs for nearly two decades, will return to theatres for the first time in 20 years.
