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 Snow Piercer, 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.Make sure you stay tuned for more updates!
Yesterday we shared the first set of concept art from Bong Joon-ho‘s upcoming sci-fi thriller, and today we have the first official image from Snowpiercer! Man, don’t know about you, but I’m really excited about this movie! Make sure you check out the rest of this report to find a larger image, and let us know what you think! Bong Joon-ho co-wrote the scipt with Kelly Masterson, and as we previously reported, the movie is actually based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Set in the future, it follows the passengers in the train who are the only survivors on Earth. In other words – we have the surviving members of humanity who struggle to survive covered in ice on a supertrain where the poor and the rich are constantly at odds. This image shows us one of the cast members – Song Kang-ho, who is (obviously) the part of the poor class. Beside Kang-ho, Snowpiercer also stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris. In case you’ve missed, here’s the official synopsis once again:
