Parasite Graphic Novel in Storyboards Coming on May 19

-

Grand Central Publishing will be releasing the complete storyboards to writer-director Bong Joon Ho’s four-time Academy Award-winning Parasite, as a book, currently set to hit stores in May 19, 2020. You can pre-order the Parasite graphic novel featuring the storyboards at Amazon.

Parasite just made history as the first foreign language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture and the first Korean film to win Best Director, Best International Film, and Best Original Screenplay. Parasite was also nominated for Best Production Design and Best Editing, and previously won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

The NEON release is currently available on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD at Amazon. It will start streaming exclusively on Hulu on April 8th.

Grand Central has acquired North American rights to the Parasite graphic novel, which has already been published in South Korea, from David Kuhn and Nate Muscato at Aevitas Creative Management. The 304 pages, drawn by director Bong himself, depict every scene in the movie and read like a graphic novel. The dialogue, stage and camera directions will be translated into English from Korean. The book will include a foreword written by Bong about the making of the film and his creative process.

The New Trailer for Bong Joon-ho's Parasite

“Director Bong’s illustrations share the illuminating power of his writing and directing, making the Parasite graphic novel a gorgeous, riveting read and fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of one of the best films of the year,” says Senior Editor Wes Miller, who acquired the Parasite graphic novel for Grand Central Publishing. “The result is an all-new way to experience the vertiginous delights and surprises of Bong Joon Ho’s deeply affecting, genre-defying story.”

Parasite debuted at the Cannes film festival where it became the first Korean film to win the coveted Palme d’Or and has since gone on to play at festivals across the country, including Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festival.

Parasite Box Office

Parasite was written and directed by Bong Joon Ho and features a SAG Ensemble Award-winning cast including his long time collaborator Song Kang Ho, Choi Woo Shik, Park So Dam, Cho Yeo Jeong, Lee Jung Eun, Lee Sun Kyun, and Chang Hyae Jin.

Bong Joon Ho brings his singular style to this pitch-black modern fairytale, the winner of four Academy Awards. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

Parasite Streaming Release Set for Hulu on April 8

The film is set amidst the two families, the Parks, the picture of aspirational wealth, and the Kims, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity.

Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household.

When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
