After its historic Best Picture Oscar win, Bong Joon Ho’s masterpiece Parasite will begin airing exclusively on Hulu April 8.
Parasite stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam, and Jang Hye-jin and follows greed, class discrimination and a mysterious interloper who threatens the newly formed symbiotic relationship between the wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim clan.
Since its debut at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Palme d’Or, Parasite invaded the fall film festivals and topped critics’ list as the best film of the year. Along the way it picked up the Golden Globe for Foreign Language Film and the Screen Actors Guild cast award, a first for a non-English language film.
Already a hit worldwide, Parasite opened in the United States in October to the highest per screen average of the year on its way to a blockbuster $49M (as of this weekend) and over $200M globally.
The film first made Oscar history by being the first film from South Korea to be Oscar-nominated and on February 9 became the first non-English language Best Picture winner in the 92 years of the Academy Awards, also taking home Best Director for Bong Joon Ho, Original Screenplay (Bong with Han Jin Wan) and International Feature Film.
