First Footage From SNOWPIERCER Hits

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 remaining populace aboard the train have been divided into strict social classes with the poorest at the back of the train and high society at the front. A revolution begins at the back that will not be deterred until it reaches the very front.

@MrSpock.... the director is from the 2006 koren film... not the American one...

@MrSpock you look like an idiot now the host is an asian monster film that has a 93% on rotten tomatoes do your damn research
Jolt17 - 4/29/2013, 5:55 AM
Awesome. I'm really looking forward to this.

MrSpock: Quick lesson...

One of them is crap, and the other is great. You should be able to tell which is which.

folks, anyone who has seen Host and Mother (two very different but INCREDIBLE movies) can tell you, this movie is probably going to be excellent.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/29/2013, 6:02 AM
Love this guy's work. The Host and Mother was quite something.

@NorrinRaddical, agreed.
DamienGrayson - 4/29/2013, 6:12 AM
Yeah, quite excited for this one. I'm as big a horror fan as I am a CBM fan, and the Host is easily one of the best in the genre within the past decade.

Can't wait!

This might sound funny, but I'm a huge fan of South Korean movies, and with this being produced by my current favorite director, Park Chan-Wook... I am excite.

The '06 Host is badass! The test footage from the sequel looks cool too

This is one of my top must see movies this year.
@loki, great Soylent Green reference, funny was watchin' Barney Miller last night, and Fish made a Soylent Green refernce also.

Tainted@ I'm with you. I watch a lot of South Korean films and television series. They put out some pretty good period pieces and contemporary spy/action series.

Good to see the Avengers cast getting good projects. Hope they keep on making movies outside of the MCU.
