Bong Joon-Ho's "Okja" looks fantastic

















For all its third act flaws, I loved Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer." So much so that it made my ten best list of 2014. He had his pblic fight against Producer Harvey Weinstein's insistence to snip the film, but the film ended up being a mild commericial success and a knockout critical success. Netflix has given him total carte banche here to make "Okja," which I don't know too much about except for this newly released trailer which looks phenomenal. 

The film stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Lily Collins and is shot by photography wizard Darius Khondji. Are we excited yet? the film which follows  a young girl that refuses to give up and puts everything on the line to prevent a powerful company from kidnapping her best friend, Okja, a unique, beastly animal. 

When is Netflix going to be screening this for me? I presume I might actually be watching this at the Cannes Film Festival this coming May.

“Okja” premieres on Netflix June 28th.
