Brilliant First Trailer For Snowpiercer, An Obvious Contender For The Year’s Best Sci-Fi Picture

Bong Joon-Ho is making his English language moviemaking debut with Snowpiercer, an adaptation of the Transperceneige comics. As you’ll see from this first trailer, the set up is simple but the stakes are explosive.

I’m British so class warfare and train carriage apartheid both really strike a nerve with me, but this trailer would be exciting for anybody, I’m sure.

That’s two sci-fi roles for Tilda Swinton this year, alongside Terry Gilliam‘s Zero Theorem, and she’s wearing fake teeth in both. C’mon, Swinton – make it a hat trick. Just for me.

Thanks to The Film Stage for that embed. You can also see a slightly better quality version at Naver, and I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a HD replacement.
