If you’ve seen one of Bong Joon Ho’s movies before—The Host or Snowpiercer, for example—then it shouldn’t be surprising at all to you that Okja is a mix of dead seriousness and bursts of farcical humor. It’s also a movie with a very complicated message, anchored by a tale about a beautiful girl and her monster. And…
As far as I can tell, Okja will get a whole lot of mileage from one essential truth: don’t take things from little girls. Especially their magical cryptid animal friends.
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.
Okja, Bong Joon-Ho’s first movie since Snowpiercer, is definitely shrouded in mystery. Is it a horror film, or a fairy tale— or hell, is it both? What is Tilda Swinton’s character up to? And what the hell does Okja actually look like? Well, the last question gets a sort-of answer, with the latest poster for Netflix’s…
We’re eagerly awaiting Okja, the next film from visionary director Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer). While the plot—a girl named Mija fights to keep a giant company from taking her monster friend—sounds fairly straightforward, this bizarre faux ad for the Mirando Corporation shows it’s anything but.
We’ve already had a few glimpses of Okja, Bong Joon-Ho’s first movie since Snowpiercer, about a little Korean girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), who befriends a monstrous creature that’s being hunted by an evil corporation. But this is the first trailer, which includes Tilda Swinton as a creepy scientist. What could…
Bong Joon-Ho came to the world’s attention with his wonderful 2007 monster movie The Host. The director has followed up his hit adaptation of Snowpiercer with a return to the genre in Okja, but it sounds like it’s going to be quite a different take on the monster film.
The team behind Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is making a show based on Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film Snowpiercer, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Snowpiercer, the action-packed 2014 dystopian drama, is jam-packed with evocative imagery. The train against the snowy countryside, the radically different cars on the train, as well as the battles that happen on it. Choosing a single moment for a poster is tough. Which is why artist JC Richard didn’t choose just one.
Limitless. Minority Report. Damien. Fargo. Scream. Ash vs Evil Dead. The list of movies that are now TV series goes on and on, and we have another to scrawl onto the bottom of the ever-lengthening list: Bong Joon Ho’s “dystopia on a train” thriller Snowpiercer is now Snowpiercer: The Comic: The Movie: The TV Show.
We shall never tire of analyzing Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer. And now, Nerdwriter has compiled a video breakdown of the film's visual allegories. Watch how the director uses camera angles and colors to perpetuate (or challenge) the driving force of this film. Did you catch all these different layers on your first…
At first glance, Snowpiercer's premise sounds kind of bizarre. There's been an Ice Age, and the last surviving humans gather on a huge train that drives around in circles. And there's class struggle among the passengers. And yes, the resulting film is absurd. In the absolute best way. Spoilers ahead...
At long last, the acclaimed post-apocalyptic film Snowpiercer is coming to select U.S. theaters this weekend. We were lucky enough to sit down with director Bong Joon-ho for an exclusive interview, and he unraveled the movie's themes and the reasons for its unique visual style.
Let's be real, a movie about a post apocalyptic train that is speeding through the destroyed Earth struggling under a bloody class war could be... silly. But the new red-band trailer for Bong-Joon Ho's Snowpiercer shows the movie is anything bute.
First the good news: After all the drama and Harvey Weinstein's desire to trim 25 minutes of screentime and add voiceovers to Bong Joon-Ho's acclaimed adaptation of the French scifi comic Snowpiercer, U.S. audiences will get to see the film in its entirety. The bad news? These U.S. audiences are going to really tiny.
Apparently negotiations between Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-Ho and producer Harvey Weinstein have broken down, because Playlist is reporting that Weinstein refuses to release the movie in North America at all unless he gets to give it what many in the industry call "the full Blade Runner."
There's lot of new footage in this newest and but also last international trailer for Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer... but also a lot of new questions. Questions like: Are the people in the front really allowed to just take the children of the people in the back? Because I can see how that would annoy them.
We've been patiently waiting the U.S. premiere of Bong Joon-ho's snow train movie Snowpiercer. But in spite of the exceedingly high praise the movie has received internationally, Weinstein is cutting the U.S. release to bits, because he thinks we're all dum-dums.
