In the two decades that have passed, Bong Joon-ho has not only solidified his reputation as one of the most innovative and talented directors to emerge from Korea (which is saying a lot), but he has also left a legacy that may one day place him in the debate with the greatest directors of our time. The imaginative artist has repeatedly shown his credentials, with works ranging from sombre crime dramas like Memories of Murder to his Best Picture winner, Parasite. Now, almost four years after his last publication, Bong is back with a brand-new, mind-bending tale called Mickey 17.

Mickey 17,” based on Edward Ashton’s 2022 sci-fi novel “Mickey 7,” will likely maintain the core

premise. It revolves around Mickey 7, an “expendable” who resists relinquishing his identity when his

clone replacement emerges. His disappearance on the ice world of Niflheim triggers this crisis.

Furthermore, Mickey 7 grapples with the curious indigenous life on the frozen planet, adding complexity

to the story.

This sets the stage for intriguing interactions between different versions of Robert Pattinson’s character

and offers glimpses into the dark fates of his prior iterations leading up to the film’s events.

Warner Bros. did offer the public a sneak peek at Bong Joon-ho’s future film in December 2022, when the

studio published the first Mickey 17 teaser, though it will likely be some time before we receive a full

trailer. Although there are undoubtedly more questions than answers in this case, the suspense is certainly

increased by seeing this 30-second video:

The video clip features Robert Pattinson‘s character dozing off in a chamber, with the camera spinning

around and a stunning yet disorganised violin arrangement playing in the backdrop is just amazing and

may contain a plethora of clues. What does the number “18” at the end of the video mean? What causes

Pattinson to awaken?
