We caught a brief glimpse of him in the film's trailer, but I don't recall seeing a yellow mohawk on his head.

Spike Lee's much-anticipated Oldboy adaptation, which stars Josh Brolin, along with Sharlto CopleyElizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson, will open on November 27 - Thanksgiving weekend - courtesy of FilmDistrict

Spike Lee directed the film from a script penned by Mark Protosevich, who is also co-producing, along with Roy LeeDoug Davison and Nathan Kahane of Good Universe.

I actually expected the film to premiere at some international film festival before it's released commercially, like Toronto or Venice, to create some early buzz and build anticipation, and then it opens in USA theaters a month-and-a-half later. But with both TIFF and Venice already revealing their lineups, the only other high-profile festivals left are the New York Film Festival and possibly AFI. Although the NYFF has already unveiled its main slate for this year. 

We'll see.

this push to November, it actually could premiere at the New York Film Festival, in October.

We'll see.

So how about that mohawk?

    I've often said that some graduate student could do a thesis identifying and analyzing the Cinematic Coif's of Samuel L Jackson.
