While we still don’t have a confirmed U.S. release date, Bong Joon-ho‘s post-apocalyptic drama Snowpiercer will be arriving internationally this summer. We’ve now got our first pieces of footage from the film, revealed in a one-minute featurette, mixed in with behind-the-scenes content. Like the bulk of the story itself, most of the footage takes place inside of our train (featuring our lead Chris Evans fighting to survive), but there is also a glimpse at some of the action outside. Also starring John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung, one can see the first footage below as we await The Weinstein Company’s news of a release date.
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.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
