Not a lot of big trailers hit the web this week, but Snowpiercer, starring Chris Evans and Conan O’Brien lookalike Tilda Swinton seems interesting. It seems to be a science fiction flick, with the futuristic society and all, which is a plus for me, especially if it captures the essence of the genre like I can imagine it doing. There’s also this summary from IMDb:
“In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off all life on the planet except for a lucky few that boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system evolves.”
Veeeeeeeeery interesting, now let’s see if the story pays off.
With Chris Evans gaining Captain America fame, it is nice to see him play a character drastically different than the patriotic superhero. I like the beard, Chris, I like it a lot. Hopefully this is a role where he acts a bit. I can’t honestly say he is a good actor or not.
This movie was directed by South Korean director Joon-ho Bong and was released there last year. I’m not sure when it is released in the states. Cheers.
