Last week, we got an extended look at the upcoming film ‘Snowpiercer’ starring Chris Evans, John Hurt, and Tilda Swinton in the form of an impressive collection of new stills from the film. Now, if you were looking for another opportunity to explore the world of Bong Joon-ho’s English language debut, then you’ve come to the right place.
Not only can you check out some new pictures, but also a new trailer and six featurettes collecting interviews with the director, cast, and crew. For starters, we’ll take a look at the newest trailer that shows off how intense things are getting on this train. You can see it below, followed by the synopsis of the film:
‘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.
Next, the new stills featuring the film’s stars Evans, Hurt, and Swinton alongside award winning co-star Octavia Spencer can be seen in the gallery below:
Finally, we have the featurettes. Unfortunately, the only interviews that are in English are the ones conducted with the English-speaking members of the cast, but they’re still worth a watch because there are a ton of new clips from the film thrown in between the behind the scenes and interview portions. One of them even gives us a first look at Alison Pill, a cast member who hasn’t been seen previously in the other promotional material. The ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World’ actress appears to be playing a teacher of the upper class of the train.
While no US release date has been announced yet, ‘Snowpiercer’ starring Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung opens in South Korea on August 1, 2013.
