M - A screening at the Cannes Film Festival had to be stopped after the film was booed in its first few minutes, BBC News reported.

But the whistling, booing and jeering started before the movie.

Netflix has released a trailer for Snowpiercer director Bong Joon Ho's Okja, which finally gives us a look at the massive animal that has won a young girls heart.

While we await to see the reception at tonight's premiere, here are some images from today's photocall and press conference here in Cannes with the likes of Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Jake Gyllehaal and more in attendance. But when a multinational business named the Mirando Corporation takes the titular creature to NY in the name of self-promotion, Mija sets out on a rescue mission.

According to French law, a movie which opens in a French cinema has to wait three years until it is available for streaming.

"The second time around the audience booed the Netflix logo again".

The first trailer for Bong Joon Ho's Okja is now available for your consumption! Since the screening, Okja has received predominantly positive reviews with The Guardian describing it as a "glorious family adventure" and Indiewire claiming it's a "delightful tale".

Okja will be available to stream on Netflix from 28th June and will get a United Kingdom theatrical release on 23rd June. "I don't think it will happen", she explained.

"We are totally delighted for her and the team behind it that Cannes Film Festival has embraced the film so".

Swinton, a former Cannes juror, responded, "The truth is, we didn't come here for prizes".

With elements of "King Kong", British magazine Sight and Sound said the "snazzy science fiction succeeds as both a critique of the modern meat industry and a bittersweet tale of the bond between a girl and a mighty beast". So its inclusion - and that of Netflix's The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), from Noah Baumbach - has prompted roars of protest so loud, the festival changed its rules to exclude Netflix titles from future competition slates.

Swinton, who lives in Nairn, plays twin sisters in the film, basing the character of Lucy on Ivanka Trump, amongst others. "He can say anything-I'm a huge fan of Pedro Almodóvar, so that the fact that he talks about this film, in glowing terms or otherwise, I'm happy". And Bong praised the company's support: "I loved working with Netflix...and giving a [considerable] budget to a director isn't very common - it was a wonderful experience".

Okja with hit Netflix on June 28, 2017.
