Okja (official trailer)
This week brings our first real surprise winning trailer, and it isnt just the kind of movie we’re talking about here, but also who made this movie. We have our first Netflix entry here with the first main trailer for Okja. Okja is the nest entry from writer, director Bong Joon Ho of Snowpiercer fame, and he manages to stack another impressive cast here. The movie stars Tilda Swindon, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, Jake Gyllenhaal, and a many more. The movie centers around the idea of a near future cooperation, that through scientific advnaces, creates an entirely new breed of animal, called a super pig in the trailer as a new means to feed the world. Problems soon arise when a young girl who becomes best friends with one of the animals has it taken from here.
The movie deals with many different concepts from factory farming to our thoughts on even eating meat. But more than that, the movie uses its narrative to tell what should be a heart warming story that has these higher more complex ideas weave around and through it to keep it grounded. So what do you think about Okja? Does the concept intrigue you, and what do you think about the visuals? That will no doubt be one of the biggest points on which this movie will likely live or die, but it is our trailer of the week, give it a look and tell me what you think.
