After months of international trailers and clips, an official domestic Snowpiercer red-band trailer has been released online.  Directed by Bong Joon-ho (The Host), 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.  This debut U.S. trailer is absolutely fantastic, as it sells both the topical social commentary and the thrilling visuals in equal measure.  While it feels like it’s been forever since we first heard about the film, I’m very much looking forward to finally seeing it in theaters this summer—with Joon-ho’s cut intact, no less.

The film stars Chris Evans, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung.  Snowpiercer opens in theaters on June 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Snowpiercer:

In this sci-fi epic from director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother), a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet.  The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster.
