Fantasy Reality: Catherine George on Costuming Okja

Minor Spoilers

Okja (2017) is the second film that costume designer Catherine George has worked on with director Bong Joon-ho. Their first together, Snowpiercer (2013), despite being lauded by critics (and featuring Chris Evans), only received a limited theatrcial run in the U.S. and no release at all in the UK. Unlike Okja, Snowpiercer is an out and out sci-fi fantasy set when most of the world’s population have been wiped out and those who remain live on perpetually moving train. Okja is still a fantasy, it revolves around a little girl Mija (An Seo Hyun) trying to save her giant ‘super pig’ from being harvested as Gm bacon, but is set within our recognisable reality. There are smart phones, cars we know, Instagram and Facebook. However the film has a deliberate otherworldly feel about it. Not quite in the future and not as locked as a parallel universe, but

Second Opinion – Okja (2017)

Okja, 2017.

Directed by Joon-ho Bong.

Starring Seo-Hyun Ahn, Hee-Bong Byun, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Je-mun Yun, Shirley Henderson, Daniel Henshall, Devon Bostick, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Synopsis:

Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja.

Not only is Okja the latest charmingly warped, socially relevant concoction from one of the most exciting working directors today Joon-ho Bong (Snowpiercer), it’s also a call to arms regarding abusive practices toward animals in the meat industry, and something of a calling card for animal-rights activists across the globe. Okja isn’t just merely exceptional filmmaking that intelligently juggles tones ranging from Disney fable, action epic, scathing social commentary, black humor, international storytelling, and an examination of corporate greed (which on paper sounds like it would translate to an absolute mess in

Everyone Wants ‘Okja’ in Second Trailer and Massive Gallery of Stills

In less than two weeks one of the most thrilling blockbusters of the summer, Bong Joon-ho‘s Okja, is arriving. While we recommend going into the globe-trotting adventure cold (and seeing it on the big screen, if possible), Netflix has now released a second trailer, which ups the emotion, as well as a huge gallery of new images.

One of our Cannes favorites, we said in our review, “A dystopian story about a genetically engineered beast with overt anti-capitalist connotations, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja represents a synthesis and an upgrade – in scale as well as quality – of the director’s previous outings The Host and Snowpiercer, confirming him as one of the finest contemporary craftsmen of intelligent, ambitious blockbusters.”

While you’re watching newly added films from the director on Netflix, check out the new trailer and new photos below for the film starring Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, An Seo Hyun,

New Okja Trailer Is E.T. Meets Goonies with an Eco-Terrorist Twist

New Okja Trailer Is E.T. Meets Goonies with an Eco-Terrorist Twist
We're currently deep into the summer movie season, and while there have already been big hits like Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Wonder Woman, the most talked-about movie of the summer may be coming from the Netflix streaming service. Netflix has released a third trailer for Okja, which is set to debut Wednesday, June 28, the same day as another highly-anticipated movie hits theaters, Edgar Wright's Baby Driver. While the reviews from the Okja world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival have been strong, it also caused quite a bit of controversy.

We reported last month that the Okja Cannes premiere lead to many moviegoers booing when the Netflix logo was shown on the big screen, and that the premiere was marred by a glitch that caused the film to be started over, with the Netflix logo booed even more the second time around. The festival denied claims that

Alien: Covenant Barely Gets Box Office Win Over Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Alien: Covenant Barely Gets Box Office Win Over Guardians of the Galaxy 2
As expected, Marvel's box office blockbuster sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had no trouble taking care of business in its first two weeks at the box office. In its third frame this weekend, though, it was expected to be a close race between Guardians 2 and 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant, and this weekend's box office race most certainly delivered. It was in fact a very close race, with Alien: Covenant coming out on top with $36 million, with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 following close behind with $35 million. Since these movies are so close together, it's possible that they could swap spots on the charts when the actual numbers are released.

This opening weekend tally is far below the $51 million debut of 2012's Prometheus, with this Alien prequel, set 10 years after the events of Prometheus. The prequel Prometheus was see as quite the disappointment to many fans ,but Alien: Covenant

Cannes: Bong Joon Ho’s ‘Okja’ Booed During Technical Glitch and Netflix Logo at  First Press Screening
Bong Joon ho’s “Okja” was booed at its Cannes Film Festival press screening on Friday after a technical issue caused the film to be projected in the wrong aspect ratio for several minutes at the start of the movie.

Cannes 2017: Okja Revealed! [Trailer]

Oh Bong Joon Ho. You crazy, crazy man.

We all knew that Joon Ho's new movie was a creature feature but I'm pretty certain no one expected it to be about a giant pig. That's right. Okja is, for all intensive purposes, a giant swine.

Seo-Hyun Ahn stars as Mija, a young girl whose best friend is a massive animal she's named Okja. Her idyllic life is turned upside down when a multi-national company, the face of which is none other than Tilda Swinton, swoops in to take the animal - the first of what they hope is a new source of meat. Devastated and willing to do anything to rescue her best friend, Mija teams up with a ragtag group of animal rights activists, led by Paul Dano, to rescue her pet.

Okja also stars Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Devon Bostick, Giancarlo Esp [Continued ...]

First Trailer Hits For Netflix Original Film Okja, & It’s Gorgeous

Netflix has spent the past few years becoming one of the most respected television “networks” around. They started with shows like House of Cards, but after producing dozens of original series, and raking in solid review after solid review for their shows, they’ve made it their next mission to do the same for film. But can they actually succeed at becoming a reputable TV And film studio?

Later this year, we’ll be getting the Brad Pitt film War Machine, but don’t think their commitment ends there. On the more magical side of things, they have a film called Okja. This flick is co-written and directed by Bong Joon Ho, the man behind such films as The Host (no, not the one based on the Stephanie Meyer book) and Snowpiercer, the latter of which starred Chris Evans.

‘Okja’ Trailer: Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or Contender Introduces the World’s Most Adorable Beast — Watch
In advance of its splashy bow at Cannes this week, Netflix has released the first full trailer for its much-anticipated Bong Joon Ho monster joint, “Okja.” And it’s adorable.

Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, Paul Dano, and Ahn Seo-hyun star in the monster film, which appears to marry the concerns of corporate greed (care of Swinton’s character) and charming inter-species friendship (the eponymous beast and Ahn) into one glorious mash-up of humor and terror as only Bong could create.

First Full Trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Okja’ Finds an Animal on the Loose

It may not win the Palme d’Or if the jury president has his way, but that doesn’t lessen our anticipation for Bong Joon-hoo‘s Snowpiercer follow-up Okja. Starring Ahn Seo-hyun, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Devon Bostick, Byun Hee-bong, and Shirley Henderson, the Netflix-produced and distributed feature tracks the struggle to stop a multinational corporation from kidnapping the titular monster. The first full trailer has now arrived which shows off much more of the adventure.

“At first, Darius Khondji, my cinematographer, and I wanted to shoot Okja on 35mm, but Netflix insisted that all Netflix originals be shot and archived in 4K,” Bong tells Variety, discussing the approach to cinematography. “Khondji then figured that we would use Alexa 65, which equates to a 70mm film in digital format. It makes a great cinematic vibe.”

Can Alien: Covenant Burst Through Guardians 2 at the Box Office?

Can Alien: Covenant Burst Through Guardians 2 at the Box Office?
Marvel's blockbuster sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2 had no trouble destroying its box office competition last weekend with $65.2 million, up slightly over the Sunday estimate of $63 million, and posting a 55.5% decrease from last weekend's $145 million debut. The sequel wasn't given any real competition by the underperforming Snatched ($19.5 million) and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword ($15.3 million), but this weekend, it faces its toughest challenge yet, with 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant, along with the studio's family-friendly sequel Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and Warner Bros.' Everything, Everything. We're predicting that the R-rated Alien: Covenant should have no trouble taking the top spot this weekend, with an estimated $39.6 million.

This figure does come in far below the $51 million debut of 2012's Prometheus, but there are a number of factors as to why it may come in below its predecessor. Prometheus was seen as quite the disappointment
