Snowpiercer — Red Band Trailer


added: Thu, May 8th '14

Imagine you were forced to ride in the economy section for a very long trip. Would you grin and bear it or instigate a coup? Well, believe it or not, the conditions are much worse for Captain America's Chris Evans, who stars as a tormented passenger forced to ride in the rear section of a perpetual moving train in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller "Snowpiercer." And you can get a taste of those deplorable conditions in a new red band trailer, which just proves that chaos and disorder usually lead to death.

Set in a frozen future where humans are nearly extinct, the film follows the last few remaining survivors, who are now living on a globe-spanning super train, and divided into two fractions: the privileged and the deprived. But when it becomes too much to bear, Evans finds himself leading a violent revolution against the ruling class, in which victory is solely determined by the ownership of the train's engine.

Based on a French graphic novel, "Snowpiercer" was directed by acclaimed South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host), who co-adapted the script with screenwriter Kelly Masterson (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead ). The film also stars Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris and veteran Korean star Song Kang-ho.

The Weinstein company was debating on whether to release Bong Joon-ho's original cut of the film, but it seems a deal has been made recently and the director's cut will indeed be released theatrically in the States next month, on June 27th.

A failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.
