Set on a futuristic Earth ravaged by a new ice age, Bong Joon-ho’s (The Host) Snowpiercer follows the survivors of a botched global warming experiment that has wiped out most of the planet’s population. Based on French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, Earth’s only remaining inhabitants are those on a massive train, the Snowpiercer, endlessly circling the globe on a never-ending track. But inside, with the lower classes in the back of the train, and the rich in the front, an uprising has started as revolutionaries start a bloody fight to move forward from the last carriage. Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Tilda Swinton star as Snowpiercer hit theatres in the States on 27th June.
