New posters for Bong Joon-Ho's Okja describe the characters in terms of choice cuts


Pleased to meat you

Bong Joon-Ho's Okja looks like a hoot--a Spielbergian eco-adventure about a brave girl and her mutant super pig. Reviews out of Cannes have been generally positive, and Bong himself seems pleased with Netflix allowing him to have final cut and lots of creative freedom. (Bong clashed with the Weinsteins over Snowpiercer; the Weinstein Company is notorious for needlessly cutting and retooling international cinema.)

Some new promotional material for Okja has shown up as the late June release date approaches. These character posters are like those butcher charts showing where the choice cuts of meat come from on a beast. In the case of the Okja cast, the cuts describe the characters. It's some smart and eye-catching design, especially compared to a lot of generic major studio posters that feature floating heads, crummy Photoshop, and poor composition.

You can learn more about the people played by An Seo Hyun, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Byun Hee Bong, Steven Yeun, and Lily Collins in the gallery. Okja will appear on Netflix and will also be released in select theaters on June 28th.
