Everyone Wants ‘Okja’ in Second Trailer and Massive Gallery of Stills

16 June 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In less than two weeks one of the most thrilling blockbusters of the summer, Bong Joon-ho‘s Okja, is arriving. While we recommend going into the globe-trotting adventure cold (and seeing it on the big screen, if possible), Netflix has now released a second trailer, which ups the emotion, as well as a huge gallery of new images.

One of our Cannes favorites, we said in our review, “A dystopian story about a genetically engineered beast with overt anti-capitalist connotations, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja represents a synthesis and an upgrade – in scale as well as quality – of the director’s previous outings The Host and Snowpiercer, confirming him as one of the finest contemporary craftsmen of intelligent, ambitious blockbusters.”

While you’re watching newly added films from the director on Netflix, check out the new trailer and new photos below for the film starring Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, An Seo Hyun, »

Author: Scott Davis

Netflix has released a brand new trailer for Okja, their latest big-budget original film that charmed audiences at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and you can view it below!

The latest film to arrive via the subscription service is directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho, the man behind such films as Snowpiercer (still to get an official UK release) and The Host, and tells the story of a young girl called Mija (Seo-Hyeon Ahn) who has been the carer for Okja – a massive pig-like animal – for over 10 years, but when a multinational company takes Okja from their home to take her to New York to be killed for food, Mija heads across the world to find her and bring her home.

Be sure to stay tuned to HeyUGuys in the coming week or so for our exclusive interviews with Bong Joon-Ho, Seo-Hyeon Ahn and Lily Collins about the film. »

New Okja Trailer Is E.T. Meets Goonies with an Eco-Terrorist Twist

15 June 2017 4:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We're currently deep into the summer movie season, and while there have already been big hits like Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Wonder Woman, the most talked-about movie of the summer may be coming from the Netflix streaming service. Netflix has released a third trailer for Okja, which is set to debut Wednesday, June 28, the same day as another highly-anticipated movie hits theaters, Edgar Wright's Baby Driver. While the reviews from the Okja world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival have been strong, it also caused quite a bit of controversy.

We reported last month that the Okja Cannes premiere lead to many moviegoers booing when the Netflix logo was shown on the big screen, and that the premiere was marred by a glitch that caused the film to be started over, with the Netflix logo booed even more the second time around. The festival denied claims that »

Beautiful Second Trailer for Bong Joon Ho's Animal Rescue Film 'Okja'

15 June 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Everything you believe you know about Okja is a lie." Netflix has launched a second full-length trailer for Bong Joon Ho's Okja, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month to quite a bit of good buzz. The film stars Ahn Seo-hyun as a girl named Mija who befriends a giant pig-hippo-cow creature she calls Okja. When the company that created Okja comes to collect it, Mija goes off on adventure trying to rescue and bring her home. Tilda Swinton is back (from Snowpiercer) in the cast, along with Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, Giancarlo Esposito, Devon Bostick, Shirley Henderson, Daniel Henshall, and Choi Woo-shik. I saw this in Cannes and enjoyed it, saying in my review: "Only someone as daring, innovative and skilled as Bong Joon Ho could come up with and pull off a film like this." Here's the second full-length trailer for Bong Joon-ho's Okja, »

‘Okja’: Bong Joon Ho’s Cannes Favorite Could Be Netflix’s First Blockbuster — Watch

15 June 2017 2:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix has been in the original films game since 2015, but they’ve yet to have the kind of movie that turns heads around the world. They’ve had their fair share of award contenders (“Beasts of No Nation,” “13th”) and high profile projects (“War Machine”), but nothing near the level of a global blockbuster. “Okja” could very well change that.

The latest from “Snowpiercer” and “Host” director Bong Joon Ho, “Okja” is the story of young girl who travels to New York City to save her pet super-pig from a global corporation intent on making her the face of their new brand and turning her into their next big product. The film’s global settings and international cast give it a worldwide appeal that many Netflix movies have lacked. »

Brad Pitt hit the millennial pink carpet to join Tilda Swinton, Lily Collins, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun and Giancarlo Esposito at the New York premiere of Okja on Thursday night.

Swinton, echoing her heart-stamped Schiaparelli smock and heels from the Netflix film’s Cannes premiere, stressed to The Hollywood Reporter that though the Bong Joon Ho comedy centers on a girl who aims to save her 6-ton pet pig from becoming a corporate food product, its direct intention isn’t to transform viewers into vegetarians.

8 June 2017 11:25 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s been one full season of The Walking Dead since Steven Yeun's character, Glenn Rhee, was brutally murdered at the hands of Jeffrey Dean Morgan's sadistic Negan, and fans of the show are still in mourning for the beloved character, who had survived with the group for six seasons.

Yeun stopped to talk with Et's Jennifer Peros at the New York premiere of his new fantastical drama, Okja, and the star opened up about his "impactful" final scene on the AMC zombie series.

"I think I'm just grateful for it," Yeun shared. "I'm grateful that the character got to leave on such a high note. It's really cool."

While Yeun's gory bludgeoning ended his time on the series, the 33-year-old star says he still watches the show, and will continue to when season eight premieres in October.
