Tilda Swinton Synthesizes Nature and Science, as One Does, in a Teaser for Bong Joon-ho’s Netflix Film Okja

By

After giving Tilda Swinton the extremely Swinton-y role of Minister Mason in Snowpiercer, director Bong Joon-ho has found her some even Swintonier fare. In an international teaser for Bong’s new Netflix film Okja, Swinton plays an inventor of some sort who has created a mysterious piglike creature, and likes to wear a lot of white. The film centers on a young girl (Seohyun An) who befriends the creature, which is named Okja, and also stars Lily Collins, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, and Jake Gyllenhaal, who will wear some truly ridiculous outfits. Okja will premiere globally on Netflix June 28, and will also have a limited theatrical release in the U.S.
