First Dark, Gritty Poster for Joon-ho Bong's 'Snowpiercer' Rides In
Gather round, light the oil lamps, and get your first look at this new poster for one of my most anticipated films. With a summer release planned, bits and pieces of Korean director Joon-ho Bong's new science fiction post-apocalyptic film Snowpiercer have been revealed over the last few months. We've seen one photo and now Twitch has come up with the first poster. It's a fairly simple quad poster with nothing but a dark image of a man standing in a train full of gritty passengers. That might be John Hurt back there, but it's hard to tell and we don't have a high res copy yet. I'm just excited to keep seeing more, can't wait for actual footage.
Here's the first wide quad poster for Joon-ho Bong's new sci-fi Snowpiercer, originally posted on Twitch:
The cast for Snow Piercer includes Chris Evans along with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton and Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Luke Pasqualino and Kang-ho Song as passengers on the train. Joon-ho describes Snow Piercer as a post-apocalyptic movie about a few survivors who end up on a massive train that is divided by economic classes. "With a revolt brewing onboard, the Snow Piercer is a train of Earth's lone survivors that travels around the cold world." We expect Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival early this summer. The Weinstein Company is also planning a "wide summer 2013" release for the film, but no date has been set yet.
