After months of international trailers and clips, an official domestic Snowpiercer red-band trailer has been released online.  Directed by Bong Joon-ho (The Host), the story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  This debut U.S. trailer is absolutely fantastic, as it sells both the topical social commentary and the thrilling visuals in equal measure.  While it feels like it’s been forever since we first heard about the film, I’m very much looking forward to finally seeing it in theaters this summer—with Joon-ho’s cut intact, no less.

Hit the jump to watch the new Snowpiercer red-band trailer and click here if you missed the new images that debuted earlier today.  The film stars Chris Evans, John HurtJamie BellEd HarrisAlison PillEwen BremnerOctavia SpencerKang-ho Song, and Ko AsungSnowpiercer opens in theaters on June 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Snowpiercer:

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.

    this is already online lol

      Yep. Very surprised this is getting released in theaters. It should bomb quite resoundingly, it was pretty terrible. The concept alone is so ridiculous, beyond that it’s just a mess of random ideas. On a train.

      It looked nice, though. I have to wonder if the director speaks English. It felt like the American actors seemed a bit lost at times. With the way Swinton way played her character, it seems like the whole thing could have worked if they made it a parody or something.

    Incredible movie

  • Kpaqu1

    Yeah, pretty sure anyone who wanted to see this has already bootlegged or pirated this by now. Talk about leaving money on the table, sheesh.

    • Doug

      I have not done either of those things.

      • Kpaqu1

        Too bad for you.

  • axalon

    Great movie, one of the best sci-fi in a long time.

    • The Flobbit

      I hugely agree. I can’t remember something this good since District 9, not even Oblivion which I think is amazing.

      • computerbenefit

        Don’t put Oblivion up there, please. No it’s not nearly as terrible as people make it out to be but it doesn’t need to be compared with District 9 or Snowpiercer (which I have seen and think is a masterpiece).

      • The Flobbit

        Oblivion is hugely underrated. It’s visually stunning, anchored by a great performance from Tom Cruise, a great supporting cast, and some wicked action. And who can forget the score and that “F-ck you, Sally” line. I loved the film. Not nearly as good as District 9 or Snowpiercer, but an excellent film that ultimately had its reach exceed it’s grasp.

      • axalon

        Oblivion definitely isn’t underrated, it deserves the rating it gets.

        I’m with computerbenefit, Oblivion felt like a kid’s movie and Kosinksi is always chasing moods with his scenes, like that dinner scene in the first act (which was chock-full of blatant exposition). The dialogue was godawful and the scene was completely nonsensical for people who have been living in that situation for months if not years. He did this a ton in Tron: Legacy.

        The movie should have started at the 37 minutes with Tom Cruise’s character in his nature retreat house. We barely miss anything from the first 37 minutes because Cruise’s character re-explains everything to Olga Kurylenko’s character when she crash lands.

    not terrible visuals. but man if only this thing had a proper budget

    • axalon

      Dunno man, felt properly budged to me. If your story’s good enough, visuals will take a back seat.

  • The Flobbit

    I have seen this movie, and I am pleased to report it is stunningly acted, brilliantly crafted, original, and with brutal, blistering action. A

      How come it only has a 7.0 on imdb? Seems divisive.

        Divisive to fools and those morons who like to put American politics into everything: Elysium, Winter Soldier, and now Snowpiercer.

    Was on board until the bone crunching scene. No thianks

    Got the French Blu-ray yesterday. Haven’t seen it yet, but will do this evening.

    • Lee Harvey Cobblepot

      Replying to my own comment: Fucking amazing film. Smart, hard-hitting sci-fi, with a premise that is pretty ludicrous and far-fetched but sets the stage for an exciting and thoughtful story. And it’s gorgeously shot by one of my 3 or 4 favorite Korean filmmakers (I know, they’re many, but I HAVE to give it to Kim Jee-woon and Park Chan-wook, while I’d probably put Bong in front of Kim Ki-Duk – at least today. Then there’s Ryoo Seung-wan as well… shit, I don’t know). Anyway, it’s one of those things you have to see.

  • Bikoque

    I was so disappointed, great Idea, sucky ending and just …uggggg nevermind,

  • Royale With Cheese

    This was an excellent film and Chris Evans was great as well but I have never seen a more colossal studio fuck-up than this. Who’s going to watch this when the people who were waiting to see it already have?

  • One Man Difference

    I guess I’ll check this out, but did it really need to be set in a dystopian future caused by…”global warming”…*sigh*… I miss the days of movies being set in a dystopian future by a more believable calamity, such as nuclear war or something.

    Message from Hollywood: “Be warned children, if you don’t recycle and drive too much, you might end up on a train fighting for your life.” How many times can they rehash, this crap? Well, it’s Hollywood, so I guess infinitely.

  • Redjester

    The film was really fun, but don’t expect anything mind blowing/altering. It’s not that kind of film.
