Watch: First Red Band US Trailer for Joon-ho Bong's 'Snowpiercer'
"Chaos. Disorder. This is death…" Radius-TWC, the genre arm of Weinstein Company, has debuted the first red band classified (for violence) US trailer for Joon-ho Bong's sci-fi masterpiece Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans. We've been hyping up this film for a while, and spent most of last year writing about it and waiting for it, only to find that it was going to be cut down, then not cut down, and now released in the US as a "Director's Cut" - hopefully in enough theaters. I saw it at Berlinale and loved it - my glowing review. Until then, at least they cut a good trailer, but it shows way too much and spoils some big moments in the third act, so don't watch if you don't want it ruined. Just go see it. "We control the engine, we control the world."
Here's the official red band US trailer for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer, originally from Yahoo:
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 will release Snowpiercer, the full "Director's Cut", in select US theaters starting June 27th this summer. The film premiered last year and also showed at the Berlin Film Festival.

Yeah I had the pleasure of seeing this movie and I must say I was pleasantly entertained. I loved the Host so I went along to check this movie out. There are some questionable moments every now so often but the way in which it was executed is brilliant. Can't wait to see if this talented director will have a chance to go to Hollywood but considering all the drama he had just to see his vision fulfilled, that might never become a reality...and secretly...here's hoping he just keeps making movies the way he wants to.

Completely forgot about this. Loved the concept and actors involved, great to see post comments. The shot of the girl with the submachine gun calmly shooting in the kindergarten class, brilliant.

The film is already out on Bluray in some countries. I saw it, was pretty weird. I didn't get all the love. Maybe the books are better?

Under Siege part 2.1?

This movie by far is one of my favorites of the year. Harvey Weistein can go suck a fat one for trying to cut parts from this film

What a breeze of fresh air! Absolutely loved it! The wait and substaining from seeing too many trailers was totally worth it. Not perfect for sure but very well executed. There are some moments where you have to put your disbelief in a higher gear tho. I must say I have not seen much work from Evans outside his Cap roles, here he was great. Could be his best performance yet. Everyone should see the uncut version to stab the Weinstein in the foot!

I am sure I will get beat up for this, but I thought the movie was a let down.. I wanted to like it but in the end the many bus sized plot holes ruined it for me.. Interesting premise, silly movie

Awesome film! Pretty cool idea for a post-apocalyptic world/story. Gotta give credit to the books of course!
