If you need further evidence of the high quality of Bong Joon-Ho‘s Parasite, this weeks awards nominations should be proof. Today Curzon Artificial Eye has released a second UK Trailer, that will twist your sanity.
“Act like you own the place,” and what that means, the Korean auteur keeps you guessing. One thing about modern day trailers they reveal too much, spoiling the film when it’s released. There’s nothing better than getting teased and letting your curiosity keep you interested. This new promo gives away nothing, from the early reviews knowing very little helps with the enjoyment of the film.
This trailer plays on the thriller aspects, even a little of the dark satire. It cements Joon-Ho’s talent of being one of film’s great visual storytellers. The Host, Snowpiercer, Okja all prove that claim. Parasite looks twisted, tense, political, socially aware, will it earn the right to be called a ‘masterpiece’? We hope so!
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Bong Joon-ho (‘Snowpiercer’ ‘Okja’) returns with this black comedy about wealth, greed and class discrimination. Kim Ki-teak’s (Song Kang-ho) family are all unemployed and living in a squalid basement. When his son gets a tutoring job at the lavish home of the Park family, the Kim family’s luck changes.
One by one they gradually infiltrate the wealthy Park’s home, attempting to take over their affluent lifestyle.
The film stars Song Kang-ho,Jang Hye-jin, Park So-dam, Choi Woo-shik, Lee Sun-kyun and Jo Yeo-jeong.
Parasite will be released in UK and Irish cinemas from 7th February 2020.
