The second trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer was released last week. Much like the first trailer, this new look at the film gives a bare bones summary of the film in which the rich and privileged survivors of a future Ice Age live in the posh front of a train while the lower-class citizens are relegated to the poor living conditions of the back. However, when one of them (Chris Evans) decides to revolt and take the train from the rich, as is always the case with stories involving unfair class infrastructures.
Snowpiercer looks a little generic, but I have faith in Bong Joon-ho, considering that his Shaking Tokyo segment in Tokyo! was my favorite of the three. We’ll find out how his English-language debut goes as it runs through the second-half of the festival circuits this year.
