The mastermind behind the critically acclaimed film Snow Piercer is bringing a brand new A-list adventure film into the world. Netflix has released a teaser trailer for Writer and Director Bong Joon Ho‘s South Korean sci-fi Okja.
The film follows the journey of a young girl named Mija from the South Korean mountains, who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multinational company from kidnapping her best friend – a giant animal named ‘Okja‘.
The trailer features a blonde-haired Tilda Swinton prepping to address a room full of press.
“I took nature and science, and I synthesised,” says Swinton’s character Nancy Mirando.
The news comes shortly following the announcement of the Netflix Original film Bright, which sees the talent of Suicide Squad Director David Aye and Actors Will Smith and Joel Edgerton.
Okja has an all-star cast, including Moonrise Kingdom‘s Tilda Swinton, Donnie Darko and Nightcrawler’s Jake Gyllenhaal, Little Miss Sunshine‘s Paul Dano, and The Blind Side and Stuck in Love‘s Lily Collins.
The Netflix Original film will premiere exclusively on Netflix on June 28.
