Bong Joon-ho’s English debut Snowpiercer opened in his home country of South Korea on August 1st, becoming the country’s highest-grossing film. We still don’t know when Snowpiercer will come to theaters in the U.S. (and our version may be dumbed down for American audiences). That’s not going to stop us from enjoying two new trailers released with French subtitles. Especially the part where Chris Evans puts his forehead against a guard’s gun and dares him to shoot. Captain America is fresh out of f–ks to give, y’all.
We’ll just reiterate this synopsis we wrote here: “Snowpiercer is based on French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, in which an experiment aimed to stop global warming triggers an ice age instead. All remaining humans live on a train (the Snowpiercer) with 1001 carriages and a perpetual motion engine. The social class system is based on how close your carriage is to the engine, and a revolution starts at the poor end of the train. Considering we were just in the longest recession since the Great Depression, The Weinstein Company might want to consider releasing this in America. Just saying, a lot of people can relate. Also, Captain America has an axe, so it’s got that going for it, which is nice.”
