"Oldboy," "Fast 6" Posters & Updates

Two key posters, and two bits of information related to them have emerged. First, a new one-sheet featuring Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs character in the upcoming "Fast and Furious 6".

Johnson himself is concerned that his commitments to filming Brett Ratner's "Hercules" might prevent him from participating in "Fast and Furious 7" due to Universal's insistence to rush the sequel into cinemas next Summer (which would mean filming as early as this Summer). Johnson says:

"[A summer shoot] is not possible for me because I'm shooting 'Hercules' this summer starting in six weeks in Budapest. I haven't heard anything about that and I'm pretty sure I would have gotten a phone call pretty early in the morning if that was the real plan."

Next up, FilmDistrict has released the first poster for their remake of "Oldboy" which was first spotted at CinemaCon in Las Vegas the other day.

More interesting though is that an apparent recent test screening review has emerged over at JoBlo.

Said review claims director Spike Lee has been pretty faithful to the original and hasn't pulled back on the wilder elements, especially the ending. "The violence hasn't been downplayed even a little bit as it's just as sick and twisted as the original." Here's hoping.
