The upcoming dystopian film, Snowpiercer, has released a new and final french trailer. The film was directed by Bong Joon-ho and stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris. It is based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige.”
Snowpiercer is set in the future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the ‘Snowpiercer’, a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the ‘front’ of the train and poor inhabiting the ‘back’ of the train. Tired of the poor conditions suffered by riders in the ‘back’, a revolution occurs with the riders attempting to seize control of the engine which the elites in the ‘front’ consider ‘sacred’.
The Weinstein Company secured distribution rights in North America, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. However, no release date for North America has been set. You can read here however, on some cuts the director was forced to make in order to eventually get a North American distribution.
