Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite Trailer

After making a couple of relatively high profile English-language films with Snowpiercer and the Netflix-distributed Okja, director Bong Joon-Ho is returning to South Korea for his next movie, Parasite. Although the title might seem to hint at another genre piece, the first trailer and vague plot synopsis are keeping things relatively mysterious. Described as a “family tragicomedy”, the story revolves around an unemployed family with “unique characteristics” who take a peculiar interest in another family, which leads them to get “entangled in an unexpected incident.” That still doesn’t mean much to me, but at this point I’m on board for pretty much anything Bong Joon-Ho wants to do. With a cast that includes Song Kang-ho (The Host, Memories of Murder), Lee Sun-kyun (A Hard Day), So-dam Park (Bakugan: Battle Force) and Woo-sik Choi (Okja, Train to Busan), Parasite does not yet have a release date but is rumoured to premiere at Cannes this year. Check out the subtitled trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
