Tilda Swinton is super strange and a bit terrifying in a teaser for new monster movie Okja.

The Netflix original movie centres around a young girl who risks everything to stop a powerful company from kidnapping her best friend – who just happens to be a massive animal named Okja.

Tilda Swinton's Lucy Mirando is the head of that evil company, but this new advert for her company, The Mirando Corporation, wants you to know they're not all bad.

After reminding us of their "organic harvesting" and "Peachy Delight baking goods", Swinton's Lucy talks about the company's "innovative, behind-the-scenes" research that they do at their Mirando Animal Wellness Center.

"My scientists have discovered that while Mirando pigs dream peaceful and lovely dreams, those less-fortunate pigs suffer from the most dreadful night terrors," she explains.

"We cannot know for certain what pigs' nightmares are like, but perhaps they're something like this."

And while Lucy insists that "pigs deserve happy dreams", it seems it's all in aid of meat, with the company's strapline being: "The secret to great tasting tenderloins? Tenderness."

Okja comes from South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho and also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun, Lily Collins and Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito.

It premieres at next month's Cannes Film Festival before coming to Netflix worldwide on June 28.
