Do not eat the ones you love! That’s the message brought to you today by ‘Okja’. The New film from Bong Joon Ho and Netflix. Watch the trailer.
Only on Netflix June 28.
From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho (THE HOST, SNOWPIERCER), this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, 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.
Cast Includes Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals), Paul Dano (Swiss Army Man), Lily Collins (To the Bone), along with Devon Bostick (The 100), 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).
Shooting locations include South Korea, Canada, and the U.S., and the film is in English and Korean.
This looks amazing! OKJA will premiere globally on Netflix in June and will also have a limited day-and-date theatrical release in the U.S.
