Netflix continues their endless run of original TV shows and movies with the June release of the latest from Bong Joon Ho, the director of Snowpiercer and The Host, Okja. Okja is a genetically engineered pig creature created as a new form of livestock by an evil company run by Tilda Swinton but he escaped and lives in peace with his human best friend, Mija (An Seo Hyun). The company kidnaps Okja and Mija teams up with a group of animal rights activists led by Paul Dano to get him back. The rest of cast is ridiculous and includes Steven Yeun, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito and Daniel Henshall and it looks charmingly weird. It debuted at Cannes recently and will hit Netflix on June 28th, check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
