Synopsis

Post-apocalyptic science fiction meets action movie meets arthouse with Snowpiercer, the English language debut of South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Memories of Murder, The Host). In 2014, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a massive train, powered by a perpetual-motion engine, that travels on a globe-spanning track. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. In 2031, the inhabitants of the tail prepare for a rebellion, led by Chris Evans (of recent Captain America & Avengers fame), that will attempt to make it to the front of the train and control the engine. Also with Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, and John Hurt.

Bong Joon-ho--South Korea--2013--126 mins.

Director Bong Joon Ho creates a motion picture version of the 1982 graphic novel Le Transperceneige. A new ice age resulting from a man-made “cure” for global warming drives the earth’s remaining human population to survival aboard a speeding train. This entirety of humanity brings with it the trappings of classism setting the stage for a brutal and costly revolution.
