Know your place in this new red band trailer for SNOWPIERCER

1 min read


It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Snowpiercer. There’s been a trailer or two, and a massive battle wherein director Bong Joon-Ho strived to keep the original cut of his movie intact, one wherein action and visual effects were balanced with a strong critique of the social class system. Joon-Ho won that battle eventually, ensuring that his movie would be equal parts cerebral and action-packed. And the latest trailer hammers that point home in a train ride around the world.

In this sci-fi epic from director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother), a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet.  The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.

Snowpiercer stars Chris EvansJohn HurtJamie BellEd HarrisAlison PillEwen BremnerOctavia SpencerKang-ho Song, and Ko Asung. It’s finally out on June 27.
