Animated Prequel for the Apocalyptic Thriller SNOWPIERCER
We've got a great animated prequel for Bong Joon-ho's post-apcalyptic sci-fi film Snowpiercer to show you. The clip tells the stories of the world before it turns into a popsicle and the train departs. Some reviews of this film have started to roll in and they've all been extremely positive, so that's cool!
The movie is based on the French graphic novel LeTransperceneige created by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ewan Bremner, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Octavia Spencer, and Song Kang-ho.
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.
There's still no word on when the movie will be released, but I hope it comes out soon. I want to see the damn thing already!
