Okja Bong Joon-ho

Netflix has announced that they will be releasing OKJA, the new creature feature from THE HOST director Bong Joon-ho, through their streaming service on June 28th. Four months out from that date, they have also released a teaser trailer online.

The teaser can be seen below, and teasing is exactly what it does, showing us next to nothing. We have Tilda Swinton preparing for a big press conference, a little girl wandering in a forest, and a small glimpse of the creature at the heart of the film - just enough to get us anxious to see the whole thing.

The creature in OKJA is a "very shy and introverted animal" that forms a bond with the young girl, Seo Hyun An as Mija. Mija 

must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. 

In addition to Seo Hyun An and Tilda Swinton, the film stars Lily Collins, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kelly Macdonald, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, Devon Bostick, Byun Hee-bong, Shirley Henderson, Daniel Henshall, Yoon Je Moon, Choi Woo-shik, and The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun.

OKJA will also be receiving a limited theatrical release on June 28th.
