'Snowpiercer' Arrives With Red-Band Trailer

If Snowpiercer, director Bong Joon-ho’s adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, wasn't already on your radar, the new red-band trailer will probably change that.

Joon-ho's English-language debut, the sci-fi thriller is set in post-apocalyptic future where a failed attempt to stop global warming plunged the planet into a new ice age. The only survivors are crammed onto Snowpiercer, a massive train that travels around the globe, powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system has evolved, with the elites living in the front of the train, and the poor forced to remain in the back. But a revolution occurs when some of the poor, fed up with the miserable conditions, attempt to take control of the engine.

Starring Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris, Snowpiercer opened in August 2013 in South Korea. It finally makes it U.S. premiere on June 27.
