A new international trailer was unveiled for filmmaker Bong Joon-ho‘s upcoming summer 2013 crossover debut of the sci-fi action adventure, Snowpiercer. The film features an international cast that includes Sung Kang-ho, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Ewen Bremmer, Allison Pill, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt and Ed Harris.
Based on a screenplay co-written by Bong along with Kelly Masterson, Snowpiercer is the live-action adaptation of the French graphic novel, “Le Transperceniege” by Benjamin Legrand and Jacques Lob, which takes place in the year 2035 where world war has thrown the planet into a snow-covered post apocalyptic state, forcing Earth’s last survivors to board the high-tech Snowpiercer train. When their worlds collide, the survivors, divided by economic class, face an ironic turn of events causing their last best hope to become a dangerous and deadly battleground that will endanger what remains of humanity.
The Weinstein Company currently has distribution rights to the film, so stay tuned for official release date news.
