Snowpiercer Synopsis

It’s been 17 years since we froze the earth. The few remaining humans live on the Snowpiercer, a train on an infinite loop around the globe. For those at the front, it’s a lavish paradise of drugs and sushi in the lap of luxury; for those trapped in the tail section, life is short and cruel.

But change is in the air. Curtis (Chris Evans), desperate to escape the tail of the train, plans an uprising, aided by his mentor Gilliam (John Hurt). What begins as an isolated riot explodes into a mass revolution, an all-or-nothing push to the front of the train, and a war for humanity’s future. Who will live and who will die? How far can they go? Is there hope beyond the frozen wastes?

On June 27, fight your way to the front.

The dispute between Bong and Weistein “has been resolved,” and that the uncut version of Snowpiercer will open in the U.S. after all. Instead of the film getting a wide release as planned however – a move made possible no doubt to the presence of the bankable Evans in a non-Marvel role – it will receive a platform release.

This trailer in particular exhibits a solid pacing that lays out the story almost perfectly. We get to see how different sections of the train get to live before watching the heinous treatment that the lower class citizens in the back of the train experience. And all it takes is a gun butt to the face and someone stepping on someone else’s hand.

The film is set on a speeding, perpetual motion-powered train called the Snowpiercer that runs non-stop through all parts of a world following the beginning of a man-made Ice Age.

Beyond smashing Korean box office records, Snowpiercer has received very positive early reviews from outlets like TwitchFilm, The Hollywood Reporter, and Variety - all of which are run by non-invalid English-speaking people – yet TWC wants to butcher 20 minutes from the film, knocking its story-heavy 126 minute runtime down to a more action-oriented 106 mins.

What you’ll notice in the clip, however, is the presence of Chris Evans in a non-Captain America role. Which is interesting, because Evans usually tows the party line that he does Marvel movies to fund the non-superhero films … and yet Snowpiercer looks like it will rely on him kicking ass and taking names—only without a shield or a mask.

Next up in Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, the clean-shaven star has no superpowers, a gruff beard, but the same drive to change the world for the better. In this case, it means toppling the cruel class system that divides the passengers of the titular train.

Trains have played a central part in some of cinema’s most engaging mystery thrillers. A short list would read Sidney Lumet’s Murder on the Orient Express, Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, and Brad Anderson’s Transsiberian. No matter how long that list gets, however, it will never include Joseph Ruben’s Money Train.
