Just as Park Chan-wook debuts his Stoker this weekend, another South Korean director is gearing up for the release of his Hollywood bow and we’ve got an additional look at the film today. Following a poster and first still, the first still of Tilda Swinton in Bong Joon-ho‘s post-apocalyptic drama Snowpiercer has landed.
The film was previously thought to take place entirely on a train, but this image changes our mind, as we see the actress, bald and oddly glossy, on a barren landscape. We don’t have many details on her character, but this one certainly intrigues us more than any other image thus far. Swinton stars alongside Song Kang-ho, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Ed Harris and Octavia Spencer, and one can see the image below via @pierceconran.
Update: Sorry, folks. The source was incorrect, as this photo is actually from a recent fashion shoot. Check back for an official photo when it arrives.
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.
Snowpiercer will hit theaters in 2013.
