CJ Entertainment released an international trailer for Snowpiercer, a South Korean sci-fi action thriller film directed by Bong Joon-ho, co-written by Bong and Kelly Masterson.
Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette.
It stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris.
“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 will get a US theatrical release sometime in 2014.
