Oscar victor Erik-Jan De Boer, who won an Oscar for his work in "Life of Pi", is at the helm of the visual effects of the US$50 million film. Directed by Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer), this film intrigued us from the moment we heard about it. Directed and co-written by Bong Joon Ho, who adapted a French comic to make the apocalyptic train epic Snowpiercer, the film showcases a plot nearly akin to a Disney film, laced with darker themes. Check out the first trailer below.

Okja, which is an English-language Netflix original film, has been the subject of much controversy here in Cannes as it is one of two titles from the streamer that is playing in competition at the festival. Depending on how well it is received, it can generate a ton of buzz and momentum, which will only get us even more excited to see it.

The film follows the story of a young Korean farmer girl called Mija (Seo-Hyun Ahn) who tries to save an environmentally-friendly, scientifically-produced mammal, the Okja, from being slaughtered. It's very impressive considering that it only had a $50 million budget. It seems firmly in the mold of his 2006 smash The Host, which also found a monster on the loose in a metropolitan setting, though with a bit more of the explicit anti-capitalist commentary of Snowpiercer.

Hyun is thrown into action to rescue Okja from Mirando and devious circus-master Jake Gyllenhaal, while Paul Dano, a purported supporter of animal rights, offers to help her out.

Check out the full, slightly NSFW trailer here in all its glory.
