First Poster For SNOWPIERCER Rolls In
Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer has just revealed its first poster, which offers a teasing glance of the highly-anticipated pic. The film focuses on a train that never stops, as it makes its way through a futuristic world that is in the midst of an ice age. The perpetually moving habitat is sub-divided into class and those at the very back are getting ready to revolt. Following a recent image of Song Kang-ho as one of those poor passengers, now we've been given a glimpse of a wagon-full of bedraggled passengers. An old man who seems to be John Hurt stands above them, staring at us with a tired gaze.
The film, which stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, and Ewen Bremner, as well as the aforementioned Hurt and Song, has received a lot of attention ever since it was announced. Aside from a great cast, an enticing graphic novel source and some promising technical specs, the involvement of director Bong, who previously brought us Memories of Murder (2003) and The Host (2006), is getting a lot of people excited.
No release date has been announced, but the CJ Entertainment film, which will be distributed stateside by The Weinstein Company, is expected to hit screens this summer. Surely a trailer is not far behind!
