Les Misérables is coming to Masterpiece Theatre. However, it won’t be the popular musical version that you fondly refer to as “Les Mis,” but a straight adaptation of Victor Hugo‘s classic novel. So how does the cast of the PBS Masterpiece-BBC adaptation look in the Les Miserables first look images? Not too different from how they look in the musicals. Read More »

Okja looks like it will be a very weird movie. And while fans of director Bong Joon-ho, the mind behind riveting sci-fi features like Snowpiercer and The Host, couldn’t eat that up more, it may take a little more to sell the casual Netflix viewer on the latest film from one of the greatest living filmmakers on the planet.

Hence the new release of eye-catching character posters of the star-studded cast of Okja, which includes names like Tilda Swinton, Steven Yeun and Jake Gyllenhaal, and a featurette introducing the Korean newcomer and star, An Seo Hyun.

The Last Tycoon Trailer

Amazon is continuing the battle against Netflix with yet another new original series debuting this summer. This time, they’re reaching back into classic literature with an adaptation of The Last Tycoon, based on the novel of the same name by The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald, which just celebrated its 75th anniversary last year.

The Last Tycoon takes place back in 1930s Hollywood and follows Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer) and his mentor Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) as they battle for control of their movie studio at a time sandwiched between the Great Depression and the start of World War II. It looks provocative, sexy and pretty damn good.

Tilda Swinton

Bless Netflix for giving South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho $50 million to make his latest movie, Okja. The marketing materials, including the teaser, are promising what looks like another uncompromised movie from the Snowpiercer and The Host director. A new video featuring CEO of  Mirando Corporation, Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton), is the exact type of weirdness and hilarity we want to see from Swinton and Joon-ho.

Below, in a new Okja video, Mirando raises questions about some serious topics, like pigs and dreams.

okja trailer

It can sometimes feel impossible to keep up with the original shows and movies Netflix is debuting on their streaming platform, but aside from that (probably profitable) Adam Sandler deal, they have a habit of showing off some pretty good taste. For example, they spent $50 million so the great South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho could make his new movie, Okja. Look, any company interested in being in the Bong Joon-ho business is a company interested in living within the cozy confines of every single movie fan’s heart.

Now, the first Okja trailer has arrived and yeah, this looks like something we’re going to need to watch on day one.

Another movie from Bong Joon-ho? Where do we get in line? Technically, we won’t have to line up anywhere when Joon-ho’s new film debuts next summer on Netflix, but you get the idea. The prospect of another monster movie from the director of The Host is impossible to pass up, but the acclaimed filmmaker doesn’t label his latest work a “monster movie.” According to the co-writer/director, Okja is a much friendlier and probably a whole lot less bloodthirsty than the monster from The Host.

Below, check out some new Okja images and read Joon-ho’s comments on the film.
