‘Parasite’: Official Trailer For ‘Snowpiercer’ and ‘The Host’ Director Bong Joon-ho’s Latest Released
  |  @   |  

NEON has released an official trailer for Parasite from Bong Joon-ho, the director of Snowpiercer, The Host, Mother, and Okja.

The movie won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or, this year. It’s described as a “pitch-black modern fairytale,” telling the story of two very different families—one incredibly wealthy, one poor and unemployed—whose lives end up entwined.

You can find the trailer for Parasite along with more info and a poster below.


Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

Bong Joon-ho also co-wrote the screenplay along with Han Jin-won, who was the assistant director on Joon-ho’s Okja.

Starring in the film is Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Jo Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-sik, Jang Hye-jin, Park So-dam, Jung Hyun-jun, Lee Jeong-eun, and Jung Ziso.

Parasite is set to be released in theaters here in the States on October 11th.
