Bong Joon-ho’s Okja Trailer

Although Netflix’s original movies have arguably struggled to live up to the quality of their TV shows, this summer they are launching some of their biggest movies to date and offering up some decent counter programming to the blockbuster season. Among them is Okja, the latest film from Korean director Bong Joon-Ho, an adventure film about a group of activists trying to free a genetically engineered creature from the corporation that created it. With a cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins and Giancarlo Esposito, this has enough star power to attract some attention although it also looks a little too strange and offbeat to be a huge hit. Then again, I wouldn’t expect anything less from the man who brought us The Host and Snowpiercer. Okja arrives on Netflix on June 28th; check out the full trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Really looking forward to this. Definitely has a similar feel as The Host with the visual splendor of Snowpiercer. I’m sure the average Netflix user won’t like this but who cares.

    Can wait to see this on the big screen!

    no big screen for this one, unfortunatley.
