Forgive me ahead of time in case the site goes dark for a few extra hours on June 28. Bong Joon-Ho’s latest, Okja, is coming and with the accreditation of many an approving review since debuting at Cannes.
What’s unfortunate there, of course, is the controversy that precipitated from its Cannes arrival with respect to certain rules and the vociferous opposition from theater exhibitors that followed. It ultimately means a smaller audience and espeicially for those who don’t have Netflix (that is still an understandable reality) while the company struggles its advance of a day-and-date agenda.
Will this affect the film’s hopeful success? Who knows? I guess that is either up to the viewers or someone higher above. It’s a pretty obscure view from here so anyone’s guess is as good as mine.
Actress Ahn Seo-Hyun leads the story of a young girl and a gentle giant who get caught in the crossfire between animal rights, corporate greed and scientific ethics. Ahn is joined by Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano and Jake Gyllenhaal, and a second official trailer has emerged. Peep it.
