Bong-Joon Ho‘s film Snowpiercer is finally on the verge of being released in the US, and in its original cut, to boot. To announce that imminent release, The Weinstein Company has released a new Snowpiercer red-band trailer. And it’s a good time for the promo, as the film’s star, Chris Evans, is riding high on the success of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If there was ever a time to put out an explicit look at this film in which the remnants of humanity break down into class warfare aboard a train that keeps them all alive, it’s now.
A word of warning: those who have seen Snowpiercer say this trailer shows quite a lot. I haven’t seen the film yet, so can’t vouch for or refute that. So go in with it in mind.
The cast also features Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ah-sung Ko.
The surviving members of humanity struggle to survive amidst a world covered in ice on a supertrain where the poor and the rich are constantly at odds in the English-language debut of filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host).
