First Footage From Snow Piercer – This Might Be 2013’s Most Exciting Sci-Fi Movie

Bong Joon-Ho has yet to make a bad film, and I don’t know why he’d start now. This year will see the release of his first picture in the English language, Snow Piercer, and I’m excited about it bringing his work to a really wide audience.

Here’s the first footage from the film, mixed with some behind the scenes stuff. It’s all too short, but you’ll get a look at some of the cast, including Chris Evans, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton.

The film is based on a French comic book that I tracked down simply because Joon-Ho was making this movie. I wasn’t disappointed by what I saw. In short, the story is set in the next ice age, and almost entirely on a train – the Snow Piercer of the title. The structure of a train, and the class system we know that trains use, makes for both drama and satire, and I’m thinking they’ve got the makings of something special here.
