Bong Joon-ho‘s latest pic Snowpiercer is (unfortunately) still without an official North American release date, but at least we have an awesome new trailer to share with you today! As you’re about to see in the rest of our report, this sci-fi thriller definitely looks awesome, and promises some great (and spooky) train-action. Head inside to take a look & let us know what you think!
Bong Joon-ho co-wrote the script with Kelly Masterson, but as you probably remember, the whole thing is actually based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige which is set in a future where a runaway experiment to stop global warming has caused an ice age that killed nearly all life on the planet.
Here’s what it looks like:
And here’s the rest of the plot:
The only survivors are the inhabitants of the ‘Snowpiercer’, a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the back of the train. Tired of their poor living conditions, the riders in the back revolt, attempting to seize control of the engine, which the elites in the front consider sacred.
Snowpiercer has an awesome cast on board, which includes Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris.
Hope we’ll soon have that release date, and in the meanwhile – click on all these pics to enlarge & stay tuned!
