‘Snowpiercer’ trailer is a crazy ride

K. Thor Jensen Contributing Writer, Entertainment

A new Ice Age. A perpetual-motion train. Tilda Swinton. Crazy accents. Is this working for you? One of the most perplexing films on the horizon for the near future is Snowpiercer, the English-language debut of master Korean director Bong Joon-Ho, who made the excellent Mother and The Host. The flick is about a post-apocalyptic future (yes, another one of those) where an attempt to stop global warming inside kicks the world into a new Ice Age and kills off almost all life on the planet. The only people left alive are the passengers and crew of Snowpiercer, a perpetually-moving train that runs on a loop around the planet. No U.S. release date has been set yet, but I’m pretty psyched for it.
