Between Neill Blomkamp’s “Elysium” and Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer”, if you’re a fan of not-so-subtle social allegories masquerading as epic sci-fi action movies, then you’re in for a great time at the theaters this year. Unlike the aforementioned “Elysium”, though, “Snowpiercer” is still scheduled in theaters later this year, though when exactly isn’t quite settled yet. Heck, at this point I’d just like to see a trailer, but maybe that’s just me.
Until then, check out 18 new images from Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer”, including a handful of Korean character posters and new images from the upcoming sci-fi snowbound/locomotive thriller about rich people, poor people, and all the people in-between.
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.
“Snowpiercer” stars Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, Luke Pasqualino, Ewen Bremner, Kang-ho Song, and Kenny Doughty.
