The actor stepped out at Okja’s New York City special screening at AMC Lincoln Square where he posed for pictures, but skipped out on all interviews. In a gray suit, Pitt seemed in good spirits as he smiled and waved on his way into the film, then mingled with movie-industry players in a VIP section of the afterparty.
The movie, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Lily Collins, Paul Dano and young Korean actress Ahn Seo-hyun and starts streaming on Netflix June 28, was produced by his company Plan B Entertainment and recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival to glowing reviews.
This is Pitt’s third premiere in the last few months, stepping out in support of another Plan B film Lost City of Z in L.A. and most recently in New York for the premiere of his Netflix movie War Machine.
After initially lying low amid his divorce from Angelina Jolie, Pitt has been more visible lately. He appeared on the Jim Jefferies Show earlier this week as a mock weatherman warning the world about the incoming rise in temperatures due to global warming.
“Things are going to be getting warmer in this area here,” he said, dressed in an oversized brown coat and swinging an arm around half of the world’s map before turning to the other side. “And this area here.”

When host Jefferies asked him about future forecasts, Pitt’s predictions didn’t seem too hopeful. “There is no future,” he quipped.
The actor was also spotted solo the night before the Okja premiere in L.A. attending Valerie June’s sold-out show at the El Rey theater.
