Snowpiercer Japanese Trailer – Take a fresh look at Bong Joon-ho’s Chris Evans starring sci-fi


Snowpiercer is having a few problems. Despite great reviews from film festivals, it’s currently stuck in a battle between Bong Joon-ho and The Weinstein Company, over whether a recut version should be released in the US and potentially other countries as well. The Weinsteins want to recut it, but Bong wants his version released.

As a result it’s slightly stuck in limbo, so while it originally looked like it would be out next summer, there’s still no official US or UK release date set.

However now a new Japanese trailer has arrived to give us a fresh feel for the movie.

Snowpiercer is set on a ravaged Earth where the few human survivors are a train (which gives the film its name) that travels around the globe. However a revolution is brewing amongst the passengers inside. The film has a great cast, following Curtis (Chris Evans), Mason (Tilda Swinton), Gilliam (John Hurt), Wilford (Ed Harris), Namgoong Minsu (Kang-ho Song), Edgar (Jamie Bell), Tanya (Octavia Spencer), Andrew (Ewen Bremner) and Yona (Ah-sung Ko) as they ride the train.

Octavia Spencer On For Joon-ho Bong’s Snow Piercer

For years Octavia Spencer was stealing scenes but never getting particularly good roles. Thanks to The Help she’s now in demand and the favourite for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Now THR reports that she’s joined the cast of Korean director Joon-ho Bong’s Snow Piercer.

The intriguing story is set in an alternate future, where a failed experiment to stop global warming results in a new Ice Age. The frigid climate has killed off all life on Earth, except for the passengers aboard a train dubbed Snow Piercer. A class system develops among the passengers on this train, which ignites a revolt. Octavia Spencer will portray a passenger who joins the uprising in order to save her son. Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, and Kang-ho Song also star.

Joon-ho Bong is set to make his English-language debut with Snow Piercer, having found success with his excellent Korean movies, The Host and Mother. Chan-wook Park and Dooho Choi will produce. Production is set to begin in March.
