Red band trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer

snowpiercerAhead of its U.S. release next month, The Weinstein Company has released a red band trailer for Snowpiercer, the English language debut of South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother).

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.

Featuring in the cast of Snowpiercer are Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), John Hurt (Immortals), Jamie Bell (The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn), Ed Harris (Game Change), Ewen Bremner (Jack the Giant Slayer), Octavia Spencer (The Help), Go Ah-sung (The Host), Song Kang-ho (The Good, the Bad, the Weird), Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), and Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin).

 

Snowpiercer opens in the States on June 27th.

    IAs the film has been released in Korea since last august it’s actually available to watch, minus subtitles although 85% of the film is in English anyway. It’s a great show and hopefully the western release hasn’t been cut drastically like Weinstein was threatening.
