Director Bong Joon-ho‘s newest sci-fi epic, Snowpiercer, has been a long-awaited event for a LOT of people who haven’t been able to see it since the director’s equally long battle to get his cut of the film released in the U.S.. This week, that all changes with its limited theatrical release starting Friday, and if you needed any more motivation, check out the latest clip below, and by all means, get your tickets today!
It’s been 18 years since we froze the earth. The few remaining humans live on the Snowpiercer, a train on an infinite loop around the globe. For those at the front, it’s a lavish paradise of drugs and sushi in the lap of luxury; for those trapped in the tail section, life is short and cruel.
But change is in the air. Curtis (Chris Evans), desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (John Hurt). What begins as an isolated riot explodes into a mass revolution, an all-or-nothing push to the front of the train, and a war for humanity’s future. Who will live and who will die? How far can they go? Is there hope beyond the frozen wastes?
On June 27, fight your way to the front.
