We’ve got the first official image from The Host director Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer today.  It features star Song Kang-ho and a collection of unhappy extras apparently passed out in the interior of a train.  The sci-fi pic is during a new ice age with the world’s sole survivors living on the titular train and who struggle with the class system that arises. Snowpiercer also stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris in Bong’s English-language debut, which opens later this year.

We’ve also got a couple of new images from the animated Escape from Planet Earth picture, which features the voices of Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, James Gandolfini and Jessica Alba.  The film opens February 14th.  Hit the jump to check out all the images. 

Check out the first official image from Snowpiercer below, along with some new concept art shots (via The Film Stage):

Here’s the synopsis from Snowpiercer:

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.

Here are the new images from Escape from Planet Earth (via She Knows):

The synopsis for Escape from Planet Earth:

The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population.  A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA.  When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission.  But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing.  As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip.
