Check Out this Animated Short for Bong Joon-Ho's SNOWPIERCER!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
An animated film has appeared online for Bong Joon-Ho's upcoming sci-fi thriller (and English-language debut) SNOWPIERCER. The gorgeous and violent short serves as a prequel to the upcoming film. SNOWPIERCER takes place in a frozen, post-apocalyptic wasteland, where the surviving members of humanity travel the globe on a massive train. The story itself focuses on the class system that has formed on the train, and an uprising being planned by the lower-class group.
In the short, we see how the ice age came to be (as the result of a failed attempt to end global warming) and the introduction of the train itself.
Check out the short below. There is a little bit of ridiculous dialogue in the beginning, thanks to an overly-dramatic newscaster, but once it gets going, it's a great piece.
SNOWPIERCER opens in Korea on August 1st, but no U.S. release date has been announced. Personally, I can't wait to see it.
