Here's a cool set of new concept art for Bong Joon-ho‘s epic looking sci-fi film Snowpiercer. The film is based on the post-apocalyptic French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. The movie is currently in production, and has a great cast of actors that includes Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer, and Song Kang-ho. Earlier this month we shared the first set of concept art from the film, and this new series gives us a glimpse at some snowy wasteland scenery.
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.
John-ho is the same director that brought us films such as The Host and Mother, and I'm looking forward to seeing what this movie ends up looking like on the big screen. There's a possibility it will be released this summer. I can't wait to see some actual footage from the movie!
You can get a taste of the musical score from the film below if you want.
