We have already seen a number of trailers, clips and featurettes for Bong Joon-ho’s Korean box office smash, Snowpiercer, and we have already seen plenty of the film. Somehow, the numerous videos released still manage to keep us in the dark about the full story to the film, and thankfully today’s new trailers do the same.
Both trailers are French, but are spoken in English, and both reveal a little more stunning footage from the film which became Korea’s biggest box office hit of all time. Check out both awesome new trailers below.
The film has been very heavily advertised in South Korea, and it is not surprising it has had such a push since it is also the most expensive film in the countries history too. When the film eventually makes its way to the rest of the world, we have been told that The Weinstein Company will be shredding twenty minutes off the running time.
Snowpiercer is written and directed by Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Memories of Murder)
The cast includes Song Kang-ho, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer and Luke Pasqualino. Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Thirst, Stoker) produces.
The film opened on 1st August 2013 in South Korea, but no UK or US release date has been announced yet.
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.
