It's time to train your brain with this new trailer from Snowpiercer

1 min read


Snowpiercer has yet to pierce the shores of America due to the infighting between Harvey Weinstein and South Korean film director and screenwriter Bong Joon-ho, with the former wanting to give the critically acclaimed apocalyptic thriller the ‘western treatment’. Who can blame him? When things get ‘westernised’ they tend to suck, just look at the abysmal 47 Ronin, something I am still trying to get out my mind.

The movie is set in 2031 where the world has gone to pot and the remaining survivors have taken to living on a train where first class really means first class. Of course you can only keep the peasants happy for so long and so much like my experience on Metrorail each morning a rebellion is brewing. Watch this awesome trailer that looks like a cross between Raid Redemption and Elysium.

Snowpiercer has won many awards overseas and as apparently been viewed by as much as 1/4 of the population of South Korea  but a launch date in the west has yet to be announced. The stellar cast includes Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Song Kang-ho, Ewen Bremner, Alison Pill and Ed Harris. I for one am very interested to see where Chris Evans is going with his career and wouldn’t be surprised if he goes the same route as Mat Damon.

    Which version of this will we get though? The director’s cut or the Weistein hack job?

      Well, that’s the million dollar question right now. Last we heard, Bong Joon-Ho had apparently had another chat with old Harvey Scissorhands, and the result was very positive. Bong was very elusive on exactly what that meant, just saying that we shouldn’t get too worried about it.
