Not since Arnold the pig from the classic sitcom "Green Acres" has a swine been so damn charming and personable on screen. Go super-pig go! Run to freedom, baby!

Check out a brand-new trailer for "Okja," acclaimed South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho's (Snowpiercer) much-talked-about Netflix movie that follows the epic journey of Mija, a courageous young farm girl (played by An Seo Hyun) who travels from Korea to New York City to rescue her genetically modified pet super-pig, Okja, from the clutches of an evil corporation.

While on her journey, Mija encounters a cast of colorful characters that include a gang of radical animal rights activists (Paul Dano, Lily Collins, and Steven Yeun), an over-the-top TV animal show host (Jake Gyllenhaal), and a highly manipulative CEO (Tilda Swinton).

The film earned mostly positive reviews at Cannes this year, despite an unwarranted Netflix backlash. (Cannes has since changed their rules, and all future competition films will be required to have a theatrical release in France.)

"Okja" will stream online globally on Wednesday, June 28th. The film will have a small theatrical release, as well.

synopsis:
From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend -- a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija's horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.
