New international trailer featuring new footage for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer
A new Japanese trailer for SNOWPIERCER has been released, featuring some previously unseen footage. The latest film from director Bong Joon-ho (MOTHER, THE HOST, MEMORIES OF MURDER) stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-Ho, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris, and Octavia Spencer, and unfortunately it still doesn't have a U.S. release date. Hopefully the Weinsteins get off of their asses soon and release this sucker, because I know I'm not the only one that is dying to see SNOWPIERCER. Reveiws for it have been excellent, and it was a huge hit when it was released in South Korea last year, so what's the hold up? Enough bitching, check out the new trailer for SNOWPIERCER below.
"Here Come That Train A-Comin' Blues"
The film is set in a future where a runaway experiment to stop global warming has caused an ice age that killed nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the back of the train. Tired of their poor living conditions, the riders in the back revolt, attempting to seize control of the engine, which the elites in the front consider sacred.
SNOWPIERCER should hit theaters (fingers crossed) sometime in 2014.
