Even in a year full of excellent science-fiction fare, Joon-ho Bong’s Snowpiercer stands out. The film tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world where all life on Earth is contained to a single luxury train that circles the frozen planet once yearly. Within the train, a tightly controlled caste system has developed. When members of the train’s underclass attempt a rebellion, all hell breaks loose and long held secrets of this world come to light. The movie stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, The Host’s Kang-ho Song and Ah-sung Ko, Ed Harris, John Hurt,, Jamie Belle, Octavia Spencer and Alison Pill is available in theaters and most every VOD marketplace now. But it really, really should be seen on the big screen.
Last weekend at Comic-Con, Collider sat down with Evans and Co-Producer Dooho Choi for an intimate press conference to discuss the film. During the small group chat, Evans and Choi described Bong’s artistic vision, the elaborate fight scenes, avoiding the Harvey Scissorhands treatment, why a film with so many stars and such good reviews hit VOD two weeks after theatrical, the magic of Tilda Swinton, crooked-necked giraffes, watching a cut of the first two acts before the final day of principal photography and more.
