Teaser Trailer: Bong Joon-Ho’s “Okja”

“Snowpiercer” and “The Host” director Bong Joon-Ho returns to screens shortly with the Netflix original feature “Okja” which just released its teaser trailer today along with announcing a June 28th premiere on the streaming service.

Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Lily Collins and more star in the film about a young girl (Seo-Hyun Ahn) who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja who appears to be the result of a genetics experiment.

Despite no plans for a theatrical run at present, the $50 million-budgeted film will be incredibly cinematic thanks to director of photography Darius Khondji (“Se7en,” “The Beach,” “The Lost City of Z”) shooting the film on large format Panavision lenses.
