‘IT’ Filmmakers Wanted Tilda Swinton for Pennywise
From an androgynous angel hellbent on revenge to the self-loathing mother of a sociopath, a despicable dictator, the CEO of a pharmachemical corporation and pretty much everything in between — there’s almost literally nothing that Tilda Swinton cannot do. So when the filmmakers behind IT revealed that they gave serious thought to casting one of the most chameleonic and creatively-minded actors of our time in the role of a sinister supernatural clown, it wasn’t exactly surprising.

Bong Joon-ho’s latest is going to hit Netflix in a few short weeks, and the buzz around it is already starting. Okja had a fantastic premiere at Cannes, despite the controversy over whether Netflix will give their films theatrical releases, and the promotion for its release is already gearing up. A new series of Korean character posters helpfully describe almost every cast member (the eponymous super pig is absent), and separates all their traits into loins, shanks, and prime cuts.

It’s not a Cannes Film Festival without a little bit of controversy. This year, Netflix has the hot potato, as the festival has practically torn itself in twain on the matter of the online streaming platform — to purists, they’re the barbarians at the multiplex gates, but to those in support, they’re deep-pocketed benefactors for such directors as Korea’s Bong Joon Ho. And after his new film Okja got nearly pulled from competition, allowed back in, unofficially rejected by Jury President Pedro Almodovar, and then booed following technical difficulties at the screening, Bong wanted to clear the air around Netflix.

Across the Atlantic, Will Smith and Pedro Almodovar may be jousting over Netflix’s place in the Cannes Film Festival – should a movie produced by the streaming empire be worthy of competing for the French festival’s coveted awards? Or should the Palme D’or only be granted to films with exclusive releases on the big screen? Whatever opinion you hold, Bong Joon-ho’s latest entry, Okja, is set to make its world premiere on the Croisette, and big screen or small, it looks pretty awesome.

We won’t have confirmation until it premieres in Competition at Cannes next month, but from where the general public is currently standing, it sure looks like Tilda Swinton owns Okja. She was rocking a ferocious bob wig in the earliest press photos, a later still revealed the force of pure magnificence known as Braces Tilda, and now a newly-released promo video reveals that she’ll get a chance to show off her bone-dry comic timing in the latest feature from Bong Joon-ho as well. (Though the braces are conspicuously absent in this new teaser. Whence Braces Tilda?!)

I come bearing good news for all readers currently struggling to pull themselves out of the weekly Monday-morning existential spiral of perspective — what am I doing here, will this all amount to anything, what’s left, etc. etc. Those questioning the purpose of their labors here on Earth can take some small solace in a new report on Bong Joon-ho’s impending follow-up to Snowpiercer, the left-of-center creature feature titled Okja. In the period of grave self-doubt that begins every work week, it can be helpful to pin your hopes and sense of personal meaning on something greater than yourself. So, without further ado, to those feeling lost in the world and perhaps in need of a new god, I give you: BRACES TILDA.

Tilda Swinton on the Set of ‘Suspiria’ Looks… Different
Tilda Swinton is known for transforming herself for her roles. She aged herself a few decades for her part in The Grand Budapest Hotel, she went bald for Doctor Strange, and perhaps her weirdest look was the false-toothed Margaret Thatcher-type she played in 2014’s Snowpiercer. Well, weirdest until now, that is. Recent set photos from the Suspiria remake seem to show an older gentleman exiting his trailer — except, that’s no man, that’s Tilda Swinton.
