Okja Trailer

"You should know the situation is not good." This looks like it's going to be amazing. Netflix has revealed a full-length trailer for new film from Bong Joon-ho, titled Okja, just one day before the world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. I'm a huge fan of Bong Joon-ho, and this looks even better than I imagined. Tilda Swinton is back (from Snowpiercer) in the cast, along with Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, Giancarlo Esposito, Devon Bostick, Shirley Henderson, Daniel Henshall, and Choi Woo-shik. The main girl, named Mija, is played by Ahn Seo-hyun. This trailer shows a lot and sets up the complete story about a corporation kidnapping her animal friend, with tons of footage of the giant pig creature thing, and much more. I can't wait to see this! We'll have a review up tomorrow. Check this out.

Here's the first full-length trailer (+ poster) for Bong Joon-ho's Okja, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

You can see the first teaser trailer for Okja here, or watch the "Super Pig Project" viral promo video here.

Meet Mija, a girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend -- a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija's horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion. Okja is directed by Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho, of the films Memories of Murder, The Host, Mother, and Snowpiercer previously. The screenplay is by Bong Joon-ho and Jon Ronson. Netflix will release Okja streaming starting June 28th this summer.

    Looks good, loved Snowpiercer. Plus, Gus Fring? Yes please! P.S. I bet you could make some mean sausage off that fella. (the pig thing, not Gus Fring)
    Between this and COLOSSAL, I'm a be happier than a pig in S.

    I can only join the love fest for this one. Looking good and interesting. And yes, reminds me of Host, from the same director. But in an opposite, more positive way ...

    Wow. This looks great. I hope they clean some of the CG up a bit, but for a production this size I'll be forgiving if the content is as great as it seems to be. What a great trailer, great music choices.
  • Looks great! Yup, on my list!
  • Amazing. Star studded cast with an absolutely batsh*t crazy trailer. I'm down!
