After a great year of films in 2012, all eyes will be on the must see films of 2013. One film that has the potential to be a surprise hit is the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. Directed by Bong Joon-ho, it will be his first English language film following successful Korean films such as The Host and Mother, and courtesy of The Film Stage we now have the first teaser poster for the new film, along with some new concept art:
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.
The premise of this new sci-fi thriller sounds very intriguing and just as impressive is the ensemble cast that has been assembled, which includes Chris Evans (The Avengers), Song Kangho (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom), Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), Octavia Spencer (The Help), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting), Alison Pill (The Newsroom), John Hurt (Immortals), and Ed Harris (Pain & Gain).
There is no word on the release date for Snowpiercer just yet, but keep an eye out for further updates.
