The newest viral clip for Spike Lee's thriller remake "Oldboy" shows Josh Brolin playing a freshly-freed hostage who's trying desperately to uncover the mystery behind his shadowy captor by using the one clue he possesses: dumplings -- well, actually, his taste for dumplings.

Turns out, Brolin's character has been held captive in a small, disgusting hotel room for decades, where he was regularly served with boxes of dumplings -- presumably, from one of the local Chinese take-out joints in town. With red-hot revenge burning his insides (and with the help of a YELP-savvy Elizabeth Olsen), Brolin is now scouring the city for that elusive dish in the hopes that it would lead him straight to the person responsible for his imprisonment (and no, it's not Samuel L. Jackson).

And it seems you can help Brolin's poor old character, Joe Doucett, to find the right "dim sum spot." The viral video is also serving as a promotional message about an online contest where one lucky winner can take home Doucett's infamous hammer. Check out the clip, above, for more information. (The film opens November 27th.)

An advertising executive is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his punishment, only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.
