Earlier today we brought you some new concept art from Bong Joon-ho‘s awesome looking post-apocalyptic sci-fi film Snowpiercer, which is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. We now have our first official image from the movie featuring actor Song Kang-ho (Memories of Murder, The Host).
The film also stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Ed Harris, and Octavia Spencer. That's a pretty impressive cast!
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.
I can't wait to see some actual footage from the movie! I imagine we will see something sometime soon. It should be released this summer, but there's no specific date yet.
