“The film is set in a future where a runaway experiment to stop global warming has caused an ice age that killed nearly all life on the planet. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the ‘Snowpiercer’, a massive train that travels around the planet and is powered by a perpetual-motion engine. Over time a class system evolves on the train, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the back of the train. Tired of their poor living conditions, the riders in the back revolt, attempting to seize control of the engine, which the elites in the front consider sacred.”
Hard to recognize Chris Evans (who plays the role of Captain America) under that beard, but that’s really him! And besides Chris Evans, the cast also includes Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt, and Ed Harris.
The film is directed by South-Korean Filmmaker Joon-ho Bong (who helmed the monster movie “The Host”).
