A new featurette has been released for Joon-Ho Bong’s Snowpiercer, the upcoming adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. The fearutte shows off the first bits of footage from the film which stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris and many others.
Snowpiercer is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews. The remaining populace aboard the train have been divided into strict social classes with the poorest at the back of the train and high society at the front. A revolution begins at the back that will not be deterred until it reaches the very front.
No release date has been set yet.
