THE HOST director Bong Joon-ho will be making his stateside debut this year with the post-apocalyptic thriller SNOWPIERCER. Now we have a teaser poster, some concept art, and a bit of Marco Beltrami's score from the film.
Also included is a pic of Bong Joon-ho on set, striking what I believe to be an obligatory directorial pose. As for the film, SNOWPIERCER is an adaptation of the French graphic novel LE TRANSPERCENEIGE. It stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer and Song Kang-ho and will be distributed by The Weinstein Company sometime this year. Enjoy the updates below.
Snowpiercer 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 Snowpiercer, 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.
