OKJA

Netflix just sent over the trailer for director Bong Joon Ho’s (Snowpiercer, The Host, Mother) new movie, Okja, and we have it for you right here… served up fresh with a side of monster. Look for it on June 28th.

Okja is produced by Plan B, Lewis Pictures, and Kate Street Picture Company and stars Ahn Seo-hyun, Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, Doctor Strange, Hail, Caesar!, Moonrise Kingdom), Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Nightcrawler, Everest), and Paul Dano (Love & Mercy, 12 Years a Slave). Co-starring are Devon Bostick (Survival of the Dead, “The 100”), Lily Collins (To the Bone), Byun Heebong (The Host), Shirley Henderson (Anna Karenina), Daniel Henshall (The Babadook), Yoon Je Moon (Mother), Choi Wooshik (Set Me Free), and Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”).

Okja was filmed in South Korea, Canada, and the US in English and Korean.

Synopsis:
From visionary director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), a young 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.
