A new clip has been released for Bong Joon-ho’s apocalyptic sci-fi, Snowpiercer, courtesy of Vulture. Check it out below.
The site explains the clip as follows:
“Snowpiercer’ takes place on a futuristic train that hurtles around the frozen Earth carrying the only survivors of this post-apocalyptic wasteland, including a band of have-nots in the back of the train (led by Chris Evans) and the comparatively well-to-do folks in the front, who’ve got Tilda Swinton as their mouthpiece and worship the train’s mysterious, unseen inventor, a man named Wilfred. When Evans and his crew decide that the only way to effect a revolution is to fight their way towards the front, it’s up to Swinton to clear her phlegmy throat and give a speech in an attempt to quell their uprising. It doesn’t go so well, as you’ll see in this priceless clip of Swinton’s big confrontation with Evans. Was it something she said?”
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.
Snowpiercer finally arrives in limited US cinemas on June 27th.
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.
