Snowpiercer ~ Curtis - This Is Your Destiny

Snowpiercer - Chris Evans | A Constantly Racing Mind

The Weinstein Company has released some pretty cool character posters for the upcoming film, "Snowpiercer."  Above, is Chris Evan's character named Curtis, the protagonist of the film.

From Korean director Bong Joon-ho in his first English film, "Snowpiercer," is based on the  graphic novel by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette titled "Le Transperceneige."

Snowpiercer - John Hurt | A Constantly Racing Mind

A character poster for Gilliam, played by John Hurt is shown above.. The story centers around a future where humans lost the war against global warming and the world is a frozen wasteland. The survivors live on a train that circles the Earth about once every year.
"In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet, a class system evolves aboard the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine."

Below is the new trailer. I must admit, that each trailer creates interest, yet we are still not sure exactly what the whole plot is about in "Snowpiercer."



In the clip above, those that have, live a quite comfortable life, on the train. However, those that have not, live in squalor in other sections of train near the back. Curtis (Evans), rises up and leads a revolt to take over the train. 

The film stars Chris Evans ("The Avengers," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Sunshine") as Curtis, Jamie Bell ("The Eagle," "Defiance"), John Hurt ("Alien," "1984") as Edgar, Tilda Swinton ("Constantine," "The Chronicles of Narnia") as Mason, Octavia Spencer ("The Help") as Tanya, and Ed Harris ("The Right Stuff," "The Abyss") plays Wilford.


Snowpiercer - Jamie Bell | A Constantly Racing Mind

In a weird twist on Jean-Paul Sartre's concept that Hell is other people, the survivors of Global Warming, are trapped in a closed society, where class warfare begins and festers on the "Snowpiercer." The train travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine.

The Weinstein Company hasn't a U.S.theatrical release date yet, however, "Snowpiercer" is due out in Korea on August 1st, 2013.
