TheFilmStage has uncovered some media from SNOWPIERCER, a forthcoming Science Fiction epic from HOST director Bong Joon-ho.  Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, and Ed Harris star is a picture which is described thusly:  

 

==================== 

Snowpiercer is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.

====================

 

The film is based on a French Graphic Novel called Le Transperceneige...

 

...and has been enjoying a rather quiet production/post production over the past few years.  We’re finally getting a sense of what Bong Joon-ho has in store for us, via  a new pice of concept art which FilmStage uncovered on the film’s teaser site...

...and this sample of Marco Beltrami’s score for the project.  


Fascinating stuff.  It's GALACTICA meets SUPERTRAIN and I'm all about both.  Can't wait!  More as we know more...
