Snowpiercer is flying under the radar at the moment, but I can’t wait to see what happens when the trailer drops. 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 Snowpercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train. That’s almost too much premise, but the man in charge is Korean writer/director Bong Joon-ho. Bong has shown a skilled hand with extraordinary story beats over his last two features, Mother and The Host, and hired the kind of balanced ensemble a director must dream of for his English-language debut: Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Alison Pill, John Hurt, and Ed Harris.
Tonight we get our first taste of Snowpiercer. Check out the first teaser poster, some concept art, and a clip from the score after the jump.
