You can always tell the poor people from the rich people in a futuristic sci-fi movie. The poor ones are dirty and covered in soot and look miserable; the rich ones are flamboyantly dressed and look like colorful freakazoids. Apparently in the future, subtlety goes right out the window. Anyhoo, check out 8 new character posters for South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer”. If the promos for this film got anymore on the nose you’d have no more noses left. (Yes, it’s that on the nose.)
It’s telling that almost all the promos we’ve seen for the film are South Korean in origins (including these new character posters). It makes me wonder if this movie will ever actually reach the States on anything other than DVD/VOD.
Snowpiercer is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, Luke Pasqualino, Ewen Bremner, Kang-ho Song, and Kenny Doughty.
Sometime in 2013 seems to be the date, though when exactly, no one knows yet.
