Snowpiercer Character Poster

Moviegoers around the world know Chris Evans as the clean-cut titular hero of Captain America: The First Avenger, but this character poster for his Avengers follow-up Snowpiercer shows a bearded and brooding side to the actor we've never seen before. As the first English-language feature from celebrated South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho, Snowpiercer has attracted a staggeringly promising cast that includes Academy Award winners Tilda Swinton and Octavia Spencer, as well as John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ewen Bremner, Song Kang-ho, who starred in Joon-ho's The Host.

Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, Snowpiercer is set in a bleak future where the world has been submerged into hostile Ice Age-like environment. The last scraps of humanity now live within the confines of the titular train as it speeds through the unrelenting drifts of snow and ice. But even with humankind dwindled down to this meager population, class war continues. You can see some signs of it in the new characters posters, compiled by Movies.com, below.

And finally, Octavia Spencer portrays Tanya.

We know from the concept art that life aboard Snowpiercer isn't the same for everyone. Snowpiercer's poster revealed the sardine-in-a-can lifestyle for the train's have-nots. Teasing passport promos gave us our first looks at the actual film, along with an idea of who lives in what section, be it the front, tail, engine, or prison departments. All that remains is a trailer, which should be coming soon since poster promises a summer release. At this point, our excitement level is so high that yesterday isn't soon enough.
