It’s a glorious day now that we get a glimpse at Joon-ho Bong’s labour of love, Snowpiercer. He’s been hard at work on the post-production for this science fiction epic, based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Though this trailer doesn’t show much, it’s gives us a strong sense of the story’s themes of anarchy and oppression set in a bleak ice age following a failed experiment to stop global warming.
The film stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt, and Ed Harris. In this trailer, we get a great look at Swinton’s villain, who’s in charge of keeping the peace.
The film will be released some time during 2013.
Check out the brand new 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.
