It might be a little early to call Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer a science fiction darling, but thanks to some really well-crafted trailers, you can tell that the film’s producers and financiers have faith in its potential.
This movie has so many good things going for it. A fantastic international cast, some unique source material and positive early buzz from audiences and critics all point to a bright future for this film. While it may not be getting a wide release States-side (yet), this film will undoubtedly do well at the international box office. Currently, The Weinstein Company have plans to give this film a major push but no dates have been set.
Snowpiercer stars Chris Evans, Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Ewen Bremner, Kang-ho Song and Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, as passengers on a train that travels a post-apocalyptic Earth.
Check out the film’s latest trailer below. The marketing for this film has been nothing but intelligent and strategic. This new trailer adds to the list of other smartly edited trailers that tease us with class wars, action and stunning visuals the way any good trailer should.
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.
