The first trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho‘s sci-fi thriller, Snowpiercer.  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.  The trailer showcases a lot more action than I was expecting as the lower-classes, led by Chris Evans‘ character, attempt a revolution by taking control of the train’s engines.  It looks exciting, although I had some difficulty making out Tilda Swinton‘s dialogue partly because of the character’s accent and partly because of the heavy, operatic trailer music.
