Snowpiercer has yet to hit cinema screens in the U.S., but that hasn’t stopped the apocalyptic sci-fi pic from generating considerable column inches. The dispute between director Bong Joon-ho (The Host) and distributor Harvey Weinstein has come to be the stuff of Hollywood legend. Cast all that aside for a moment, though, as there’s a new red band trailer to watch. And it’s well worth it.

The title refers to a train which serves as the film’s main location. Housing the remaining human survivors following a botched global warming test, the train hurtles around the planet powered by a never-ending engine.

The wintry backdrop echoes the bleak climate aboard the train, as class systems continue to be the cause of strife for earth’s last citizens. »
