Snowpiercer Movie Review by Adam Frazier

Snowpiercer
Director: Bong Joon-ho
Screenwriters: Bong Joon-ho, Kelly Masterson
Cast: Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, Go Ah-sung, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer
The Weinstein Company
Rated R | 125 Minutes
Release Date: June 27, 2014

Directed and co-written by South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother), Snowpiercer is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette.

In 2014, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. A class system is established on the train, with elites inhabiting first-class while the poor are sequestered to the slums of the tail section.

2031. Tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Curtis (Chris Evans) leads Edgar (Jamie Bell), Tanya (Octavia Spencer), and the rest of the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang-ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Go Ah-sung). They offer him Kronol, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the remaining doors.

Snowpiercer Header

Snowpiercer, The Host director Bong Joon-ho‘s first English-language directed film, will open in Korean theaters on August 1, but the film has yet to receive a U.S. release date. We’ve already seen concept art pieces revealing what the world looks like outside of the train, and some pieces that give us an inside look too. Early promotional items from The Weinstein Company suggested that the film could open some time later this summer. But with the first trailer for the film having just debuted, it looks like that tentative release will be pushed back a few more months.

The film takes place on a train that runs around a now icy dystopian earth. Each car presents a social class, the further back you are on that train, the lower the class. The trailer gives us our first hand look at what it is like to live aboard the Snowpiercer. Chris Evans is a resident of one of the lower class cars, and he leads a resistance group that will break through each car until they reach the engine, where darker secrets lie. Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung, also star.

Check out the new trailer below.
