Apparently this is the “final” trailer for South Korean director Joon-ho Bong’s English-language debut, the sci-fi actioner “Snowpiercer”. I say “apparently” because it’s a barely 45-second trailer, and final trailers are usually longer. But hey, the official YouTube channel for the film calls this the final trailer, so who am I to call them a liar. It’s a pretty badass trailer, to be sure, with tons of action squeezed in along with some intense moments.

Still, if you weren’t already sold on the film, I’m not sure if this trailer will do it. I could be wrong, of course.

Set in a future where a failed experiment to stop global warming creates an ice age that 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, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Kang-ho Song and Tilda Swinton.

Fighting the snow sometime this year.
