Earlier in the weekend, we reported on the creepy ground-level marketing for Spike Lee’s upcoming American remake of Oldboy, which included girls with yellow umbrellas who would walk you to your hotel. We urged our readers to stay away, because as anyone who has seen the original Oldboy could tell you, there’s no way this works out in a positive manner. Yet as it turns out, no one listened and Film District is probably in possession of several sad souls at this very moment. That is, if they truly committed. It’s more likely that they just wanted some great photo-ops.
So let’s give ‘em their photo-op, shall we? After the break, get your fill of ladies with yellow umbrellas.
