"Wilford!" Is it time? Yes it is! We've been waiting to see a trailer for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer and we finally have one. Though it comes from the other side of the world (via naver.com), at least it's footage and damn does it look good. Snowpiercer stars an ensemble cast aboard a gigantic train (built by Wilford!) that travels around the world now in a new ice age. Tilda Swinton plays a Dolores Umbridge-like Mason, with Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Jamie Bell and Ewen Bremner leading an uprising. This looks as awesome as I was hoping, with a hugely deep world (that reminds me of BioShock) and tons of kick ass action. I totally love the way Joon-ho Bong shoots his film, and I cannot wait to see this!
The cast for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer includes Chris Evans with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Kang-ho Song and Luke Pasqualino 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." The Weinstein Company is planning a "wide summer 2013" release for the movie, but no date has been set yet. It will be released in South Korea coming up in August. We expect to see it over here soon after.
