‘Snowpiercer’ director’s next film debuts on Netflix June 28th

by John_A

A few years ago, Korean director Bong Joon Ho adapted a 70s French comic into film, creating the unexpectedly stunning and brutal Snowpiercer. The post-apocalypse movie barreled headlong into food scarcity, class warfare and child exploitation — topical issues even in our more “civilized” age. Ho’s next film, Okja, looks to pull a similar trick crashing outlandish characters into hot-button conflicts — and it’s coming to Netflix.

The movie tells the story of a girl, Mija (played by Ahn Seo-hyun), and her pet giant pig-hippo hybrid, the eponymous Okja. Unfortunately for their joyous love, the beast is the prototype for a genetically-Frankensteined race of livestock that will hyper-efficiently feed the world. That doesn’t sit well with a militant animal rights group, led by Paul Dano (Swiss Army Man) with Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), who promise Mija they’ll free her adorable, massive pet and expose the livestock corporation’s head Miranda, played by a madcap Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer).

If the trailer is anything to go by, the film will be another loony, violent satire from a visionary director. See it on Netflix on June 28th.
