OKJA: Netflix Drops First Teaser for Bong Joon-ho's Latest

Updated with English language trailer

Four years after Snowpiercer, Korean master Bong Joon-ho is on the cusp of releasing his next high concept sci-fi opus Okja. Netflix is backing the $53 million project, and has just launched the first teaser in Korea.

Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and more star alongside several Korean actors in the English and Korean language film, including lead An Seo-hyun, who plays Mija, a young girl trying to protect a large creature from the grips of a multi-national corporation.

Netflix will release the film June 28 through its global online service, but there have been hints that the film may receive a theatrical release in some markets, including Korea and the US. Many predict that the film could debut at Cannes in May.

    Bong Joon-ho. Say no more.

  • Kurt

    Bong Joon-Ho is best of the Korean 'Big Three' commercial directors (Kim Ji-Woon, Park Chan-Wook).

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Absolutely correct. A trifecta of superlative greatness.

    I really love Kim Ki-duk too though.

  • Ard Vijn

    True. And Lee Chang-dong.

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Sigh. Oasis is the only film of his that I own. I keep meaning to check out Secret Sunshine. Poetry too.

  • John W

    Count me in.
