By Creative Media TimesDirector Bong Joon-ho’s acclaimed black comedy thriller finally has a new trailer.
Bong Joon-ho is known for mixing disparate genres within his films and Parasite looks like its no exception. The trailer looks as captivating as one would expect from the mind behind Snowpiercer, Mother (Madeo), and Okja.
The new trailer was released by Neon this week (see below), showing lives of two families, one wealthy and another impoverished, intersecting and taking a horrific turn.
The film recently took top honor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, winning the Palme d’Or, making this the first time that a Korean film has won the honor.
Parasite is set to hit theaters on Oct. 11.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
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.
