Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy has opened to some (not surprising) bad press and the weakest holiday opening ever. The film grossed only $850,000 over five days.
Now... this isn't very surprising. Even though it starred relatively high name actors such as Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sharlto Copley it was a highly unnecessary remake. Not to mention Spike Lee has been on a lot of people's shit list lately. Add into the fact that Oldboy suffered a schedule change and should have been released on October 25th, I think people just lost interest. It's actually a bit funny that the reason for the delay was the lack of genre competition over the Thanksgiving holiday. Whoever thought a remake of Oldboy would beat Catching Fire and a new Disney movie probably just lost their job.
