The first trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho‘s sci-fi thriller, Snowpiercer. The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet. The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train. The trailer showcases a lot of action, led by Chris Evans‘ character, attempt a revolution by taking control of the train’s engines. I had some trouble making out what Tilda Swinton was saying, partly because of the character’s accent and partly because of the loud trailer music.

The film also stars John Hurt, Jamie Bell,Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung. Snowpiercer opens on August 1st in South Korea, but no U.S. release date has been announced yet.
