Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton star in the first Snowpiercer trailer
The first trailer for Bong Joon-Ho’s English language debut, SNOWPIERCER is finally here and although the quality isn’t the best (I’ll update with the HD trailer when it’s available), we still get a good look at what to expect from the film. It looks like Chris Evans gives another great turn and it also seems like there’s more action than I would have figured. The synopsis makes me think of a more politically charged drama, but this is clearly a politically charged action film. SNOWPIERCER stars Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremmer, Luke Pasqualino, Song Kang-ho, Kenny Doughty, Clark Middleton and Go Ah-sung. Unfortunately, the film still doesn’t have a domestic release date, but it opens in South Korea on August 1st, so I would expect a stateside opening this fall. Check out the trailer below.
The SNOWPIERCER official synopsis: Based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige,” SNOWPIERCER is set in the year 2031 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.
