The first official trailer for Bong Joon-Ho’s Okja has everything. A superhippo, an evil corporation fronted by Tilda Swinton, and an important message about the power of love.

Earlier today, we posted about Margaret Cho’s account of a “fight” she had with Tilda Swinton regarding her controversial casting in Doctor Strange, in which Swinton played the Ancient One, a character who originally was written as Tibetan in the Doctor Strange comics.

Whether the States will ever see the original director's cut of Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, or only the hacked up version The Weinstein Company wants to screen, only time will tell. But the drama hasn't dampened our excitement for Tilda Swinton's lunatic villainess, highlighted in this new international trailer.
Watch Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston breathe into each others mouths as sexy vampire rock gods. If vampires really were alive, we have no doubt they would look just like this.
Tilda Swinton is all dressed up like The Last Airbender for Bong Joon-Ho's wacky post-apocalyptic snow train movie Snowpiercer, set in the future on a snow-ruined planet where humanity cruises around in a giant train divided by a wacky caste system.

This is probably the weirdest moment in Possible Worlds, the alternate-reality-hopping movie from 2000. It's a bizarre, dreamlike story of the relationship between George (Tom McCamus) and Joyce (Tilda Swinton) across various realities. It reminds me of The Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, especially with…
Art professor Steve Kurtz's wife, Hope, died in her sleep in May 2004. When Kurtz called 911, however, the police saw petri dishes and a mobile DNA-extraction machine and called in the feds.
