“An enormously ambitious, visually stunning and richly satisfying futuristic epic from the gifted Korean genre director Bong Joon-ho.” That’s how Variety magazine has this week described upcoming feature film Snowpiercer, starring TILDA SWINTON.

An adaptation of French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige”, Snowpiercer is set two decades into a second Ice Age where a few thousand human survivors live out their days aboard a state-of-the-art luxury train, invented and overseen by billionaire industrialist Wilford (played by Ed Harris). TILDA plays the grotesque Mason, one of Wilford’s fanatically devoted, fascistic minions, complete with Yorkshire accent and terrible teeth! Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, John Hurt and Ewan Bremner also star.

Snowpiercer has been receiving rave reviews. Variety has called it a “rare high-end sci-fi/fantasy pic made completely outside the studio system, and that even rarer case of an acclaimed foreign helmer working in English with no appreciable loss of his distinctive visual and storytelling style”. (Read the full review here). The release date has not yet been confirmed but it will be in cinemas before the end of 2013. We are extremely excited about this film, and so should you be! Check out the trailer below:
