I belong to the front. You… belong to the tail. Keep your place.
The latest trailer for Snowpiercer sets the rules straight for the oppressed dwellers on the globe-traversing train: Control is everything. For Mason (played by an almost unrecognizable Tilda Swinton), keeping peace is a matter of totalitarian rule in the post-apocalyptic ice world.
We’ve been excited for Joon-ho Bong’s latest science fiction film for a while now, which is to be released to international markets on August 1st. For those waiting for a standard theatre run here in US & Canada, we might have to wait a little longer. Bong’s passion for the material and his excellent track record should be reason enough to see this in theatres. Besides, who doesn’t love a science fiction in which it’s up to… one man… to fight for the people? (I’m looking at you, Elysium).
Check out the latest international trailer below…
The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
