As Bong Joon-Ho‘s “Okja” gears up to hit Netflix, the debate around the company’s impact on theatrical releases and cinema chains refusing to book their movies if they’re going day-and-date on the streaming service continues to unfold. Even in the director’s native South Korea, cinemas are gearing up to block the movie, but Bong Joon-Ho believes this is short sighted thinking. “I fully understand the multiplexes asking for a minimum three-week hold back,” the filmmaker said about the demands being made by cinema owners.
