Among the many films that I am anticipating to come out in 2013, Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer is my most anticipated film. The premise of the film follows on a large number of survivors living on a train called the Snowpiercer after a failed experiment went horribly wrong and caused the entire Earth to be covered in ice. Sounds pretty cool right? Well it gets better. The train is a virtual metaphor of the class system. The further back you are in the train, the lower the class. If you’re not familiar with Joon-ho’s name, then I suggest you check out both Mother and The Host, for he is the man who directed both films.
Snowpiercer is slated to hit some time this summer, and before we can get to see anything that resembles a trailer, concept art, a teaser poster, and a track from the film’s score conducted by Marco Beltrami have been released.
Check them out below.
The concept art piece looks like it resembles something from the back of the train. Of course I could imagine it going further back and becoming more depressing that this.
Snowpiercer is Joon-ho’s English language film debut and the film stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Alison Pill, John Hurt, and Ed Harris. The Weinstein Company has been keeping the promotions pretty low key, but it is expected that Snowpiercer will roll into theaters in Summer 2013.
