If you've seen one of Bong Joon Ho's movies before -- The Host or Snowpiercer, for example -- then it shouldn't be surprising at all to you that Okja is a mix of dead seriousness and bursts of farcical humour.

But this is the first trailer, which includes Tilda Swinton as a creepy scientist. What could possibly go wrong?
