Hop on the snowpocalypse train in this first trailer for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans

Jun. 12, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Bong Joon-Ho's English-language debut, SNOWPIERCER is gearing up for its theatrical release and today we have a (low-quality) look at the trailer. The film is set in the year 2031 and follows a group of passengers on a train that traverse the "snopocalyptic" terrain of an ice age ravaged Earth. Naturally, being in a confined space for too long causes turmoil, which sees a kind of class warfare taking place between the "front," led by a crazy-looking Tilda Swinton, and the "rear," which forms a resistance with Chris "Captain America" Evans.

Tickets, please:

Not so surprisingly, this looks pretty cool. The story doesn't seem to be anything new, but the setting and premise look like a fun, high-concept sci-fi romp. Evans and Twinton are joined by a well-rounded cast, including John Hurt, Octavia Spencer, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, and Ewan Bremner.

SNOWPIERCER is set to debut sometime in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Is Tilda Swinton contractually obligated to look as weird as possible in all her films? She's like the Helena Bonham Carter of...well, she's like Helena Bonham Carter.

You imagine if he grew a beard for Avengers 2. Captain America with a full on beard while wearing the suit.

Tilda Swinton is the Helena Bonham Carter of non-Tim Burton films.

General thoughts: Trailer is awesome. So glad they kept the name "Snowpiercer" and didn't try to make it lame. Tilda Swinton looks freaky.

looks pretty good, I wonder if all of these actors realize though that they would be in the front of the train.

I'm impressed how easily I could imagine this as a Korean-language movie. Sometimes directors have a hard time with it. I just hope it's as good in English as it would've been in Korean.
