Fresh off last night’s news that Bong Joon-ho‘s post-apocalyptic drama Snowpiercer would be landing in South Korean cinemas in August, our first international trailer has arrived. We’ve been waiting for some time for the next film from the man that brought us The Host, Memories of Murder and Mother and this first look at footage seems to deliver a thrilling, futuristic tale of class struggle, all set inside a train.
After a failed experiment to stop global warming goes wrong, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the train Snowpiercer and the film sees Chris Evans lead his lower class to revolt. Also starring John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung, we’re hoping this one shows up on the festival circuit this fall and in theaters soon after. Check it out below in full HD.
Snowpiercer arrives on August 1st in South Korea, but no U.S. date has been set yet.
