Want to Watch ‘Parasite’ Online?

Want to watch Parasite Online? If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with 2019’s Best Picture winner and President Trump’s eighth or ninth favorite movie of the decade, you’re getting some good news today. Parasite, Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s brilliant satire about class warfare, will be streaming on Hulu in less than two months.

As Hulu confirmed in a tweet today, the film will be available there starting on April 8.

A Hulu press release also touts the news:

This year’s historic Best Picture winning film Parasite, from NEON, will be available on Hulu beginning Wednesday, April 8. Parasite made waves this awards season with both critics and audiences alike. Visionary director Bong Joon Ho, took home four Oscar wins including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. Additional accolades include the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, the SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast and the Palme D’or, which is the top prize at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Basically, it won a whole lot of awards this year. It’s also been a big financial success, grossing an astounding $204 million worldwide to date. It made over $8 million in U.S. theaters last weekend, its best domestic weekend yet, and received a huge boost from all the Oscar hype. So it could very well still be playing in theaters by the time it makes it to Hulu. It’s great on the big screen, but if you’ve got a subscription, that’s something to look forward to.

The ideal way to experience South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho’s awards-garlanded, international box-office smash is with as little prior knowledge as possible. So if you’re reading this before seeing the film, and you’ve managed to avoid the whirlwind of publicity it has attracted since winning the Palme d’Or last May, it may be simpler to just stop and head straight to the cinema. Because, at the risk of adding to the hype, Parasite really is the kind of remarkable experience that makes modern movie-going such a joy. I saw it for the fourth time last week and I’m now desperate to view the black-and-white version that Bong recently unveiled at the Rotterdam film festival.
