International Teaser For Snowpiercer And Over Ten Minutes Of Featurettes

SNOWP2

With South Korea’s August 1st release date of Snowpiercer fast approaching there is now plenty of new marketing material making its way online.

In addition to the trailer Brendon posted last month and the images he put up a couple of days ago we now also have a new trailer and a selection of featurettes, all found by The Film Stage.

First up here’s the new and rather brief trailer.

I was sold at just the mention of Bong Joon-Ho when this film went into production, but even if I wasn’t that minute easily would have done it. Potent stuff.

And now onto the featurettes. Unfortunately there are no English subtitles for these but some sections are in English and even for those that aren’t, there’s still plenty to see – even if you’re not able to understand being said.

I’m pretty sure I’m not the first to suggest that there’s something a little reminiscent of Margaret Thatcher in what we’ve seen of Tilda Swinton‘s costume design and performance. I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for someone to broach that somewhat tricky subject in an interview.

The discussion of class in the above certainly gives me a lot of hope for this film dealing with some pretty interesting ideas. And from the next video it certainly seems like the film heads in the direction of a revolution.

And finally, an animated sequence. It’s a little unclear whether this is an animated prologue or just a nifty bit of animation created to help sell the film. Perhaps we have some Korean Bleeding Cool readers who might be able to fill me in?

Whilst South Korea will get this film in August the UK and America will have to wait a little longer for this one. How long? Try asking The Weinstein Company, as they seem to be dragging their heels a bit on this one.
