In the midst of a second Ice Age, the remaining inhabitants of Earth are packed together aboard the Snowpiercer, a supertrain that will continuously circle the globe until the planet is again habitable. No utopian society, however, the train is separated into classes, with the “unwashed masses” relegated to the intolerable caboose while the one-percenters bask in luxury. In response, reluctant hero Curtis (Chris Evans) leads a rebellious charge to the ship’s engine room. Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, Bong’s international production also stars Song Kang Ho, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, and Octavia Spencer.
