We've seen some unofficial versions floating around the interwebs, following this intriguing teaser poster launched this spring, and if anything, they've stoked curiosity and excitement for Spike Lee's remake of Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy." Well, a brand new one-sheet has arrived today and it's another tantalizing peek at one of the fall's most fascinating offerings.

Works Adv, in collaboration with Neil Kellerhouse, the man behind memorable posters and designs for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," "The Social Network" and more, has put together this latest one sheet that has a bit more to it than meets than eye. First off, the image of Josh Brolin emerging from the chest? That's a shot from the actual film, and not a composite, while the title script is in the actor's own handwriting. (We won't say too much here, but those of you know that already know the story will understand the significance.)

The big question of course is how the film all turned out. Well, you'll get your first impression on Wednesday when a red-band trailer drops for the movie. "Oldboy" eats it raw on October 25th.

    Kellerhouse is my favorite poster artist, but I like the unofficial poster by Juan Luis Garcia better. Very similar artists.

    Cool poster although John Brolin in the trunk reminds me of Neo from The Matrix. That was my first thought, didn't even realise it was in fact Brolin.

    Reminds me of that unofficial poster involving the chest which someone said it could be misconstrued as a quirky comedy.

    @mickey, dear god you're right! Someone must've messed up big time. Although there is a line saying CREDITS NOT FINAL but still...

    Why is it a "Spike Lee Film?" not a "Spike Lee Joint?"

    It'd be more fitting with all that green in the backdrop ... this makes me think of magic, though... "Now You Found Me"
