Snowpiercer is based on “Le Transperceneige”, a french (obviously) comic by Jacques Lob, Jean-Marc Rochette and Alexis.
The comic tells the story of a future world iced over, where what remains of the human race lives aboard a single train, powered by a perpetual motion engine. Throughout the train, difference classes exist – the closer to the engine you are, the more privileged – the further back, the worse life you live. Soooo… class warfare afoot!
Very cool cast – “I’m in every comic book movie ever” Chris Evans, Ed Harris, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt… looks to be one to watch out for.
Snowpiercer is out later this year.
