Bong Joon-Ho’s New Netflix Movie ‘Okja’: First Look


Netflix today released the first look at Okja, Bong-Joon-ho’s follow-up to his critical hit Snowpiercer. Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun and Giancarlo Esposito co-star in the pic. True to Bong’s rep for visual filmmaking, the images include a storyboard of Collins’ character Red running through the streets of Manhattan, and the accompanying still that resulted.

The streaming service, which co-produced the pic and will release it in theaters and via streaming next summer, also released a still of Seo Hyun An, who plays Mija. She’s at the center of the story about a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend — a massive animal named Okja. Bong and Jon Ronson (Frank) penned the script, which was shot in English and Korean.

Check out the shots:
