TRAILER: BONG JOON HO DIRECTS TILDA SWINTON IN ‘OKJA’
Netflix Drops First Teaser Before June Release
‘Somewhere between human and animal.’ That’s the description given to Bong Joon Ho’s titular character of ‘Okja’, the creation we get a glimpse of in this first teaser for Netflix’s new film starring Tilda Swinton, Seohyun An, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Lily Collins.
About a young girl who lives in the deep woods of South Korea’s mountainous Gangwon Province with a large beast named ‘Okja’, she does everything in her power to find her best friend when Okja disappears. "I want to show the beauty that can exist between man and animal, and also the horror between them," Ho said about his first project with Netflix studios.
Anticipated for a global release on the subscription TV service this June, Brad Pitt is amongst the producers of this $50million film, which also has Oscar-winning visual effects man Erik-Jan de Boer (Life of Pi) on board.
