Red Band Trailer: Bong Joon-ho’s Highly Anticipated “SNOWPIERCER”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Bong Joon-ho’s (THE HOST, MOTHER) acclaimed and eagerly awaited adaptation of post-apocalytpic French graphic novel LA TRANSPERCENEIGE has had a long road to U.S. theaters, entangled in will they/won’t they with the The Weinstein Company over whether the film needed to be cut for American audiences’ presumed attention span. We’re thrilled to see it’s arriving from Radius-TWC this June in full, and the theatrical trailer previews the visually enticing, violent tale of class warfare aboard a train we’re hoping for.
In SNOWPIERCER, a post-apocalyptic ice age forces humanity’s last survivors aboard a globe-spanning super train. One man (Chris Evans) will risk everything to lead a revolt for control of the engine and the future of the world. Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Jamie Bell and Ed Harris co-star.
SNOWPIERCER opens June 27th.
