Netflix Releases Teaser for Bong Joon-ho’s New Movie – Will Debut Online and in Korean Theaters in June


Netflix has released the teaser trailer for Okja, the latest film from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho. The film follows the director’s internationally-acclaimed Snowpiercer, and was co-written along with Jon Ronson — who also penned the comedy-drama, Frank.

Netflix spent $50 million on Okja which tells the story of a young girl fighting against a multi-national company that keeps them from kidnapping her best friend Okja.

Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja.

Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.
