Joon-ho Bong made a big splash with his South Korean movies The Host and Mother, and now he’s going English-language with Snowpiercer. The first art from the movie has now shown up via TheFilmStage, suggesting a dystopian sci-fi look to the film.
Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Kang-ho Song, and Ewen Bremner star in the movie, which is set in a world covered in snow and ice, with a group of characters stranded on a train dubbed the Snowpiercer, who all struggle to co-exist. Ewen Bremner will play a father who helps Chris Evans’ character find his kidnapped son.
Joon-ho Bong is directing from a script he co-wrote with Kelly Masterson (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead), adapted from Benjamin Legrand and Jacuqes Lob’s graphic novel. Chan-wook Park produces. Take a look at the art above and below, and you can also listen to a sample of Marco Beltrami’s score.
