‘Okja’ To Premiere At The 70th Cannes Film Festival
14 April, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Okja

Netflix has finally made it to Cannes.

After years of being snubbed by the world’s most important film festival, the streaming giant has finally broke through. The official selection for the 70th edition of the Cannes film festival will include two Netflix original films: the monster movie Okja from acclaimed South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer) and The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), a Adam Sandler film from director Noah Baumbach.

Both will screen in the official competition and have their world premieres at the festival, which is set to run May 17-28. They will both launch on Netflix worldwide later in this year.

“The Cannes Film Festival’s commitment to giving an exceptional platform to distinct stories from the world’s most acclaimed auteurs is second to none. We are thrilled at the opportunity to premiere two of our highly anticipated films from directors Noah Baumbach and Bong Joon-ho in this prestigious forum,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said Thursday in a statement.

First Official Photo From ‘Okja’ + Plot Details
27 March, 2017 Author: Catagories: Gallery Updates, Okja

The first official photo of Jake as Dr. Johnny Wilcox in the Netflix original film, ‘Okja’, has been released. New plot details have also been released, which can be found below. ‘Okja’ hits Netflix (worldwide) on June 28th.

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja — a massive animal and an even bigger friend — at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when the family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend.

With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja… while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.
