Writer-director Bong Joon-ho’s sci-fi film Snowpiercer has been seen all around the world, but its anticipated U.S. debut is finally coming at the end of June, albeit in a limited release. In anticipation of that day, we have nine new images from the film to share with you today. Set during a future ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming (timely!), the film follows a group of survivors who live on the train who struggle with the class system implemented on board. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, so these images are a nice reminder that the film is still on the way.
Snowpiercer stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung, and opens June 27th. Hit the jump to check out the new Snowpiercer images.
Take a look at the newly released Snowpiercer images below:
In this sci-fi epic from director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother), a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.
