Chris Evans Brought An Axe To The First Footage Of 'Snowpiercer'

Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother) is making his English debut with Snowpiercer, starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, and Octavia Spencer. Oh, and it also stars Tilda Swinton looking like this:

It would be awesome if they played against type and had someone who looks like this actually be a good person for a change.

Snowpiercer is based on the popular French sci-fi graphic novel Le Transperceneige, in which humanity’s attempt to stop global warming backfires, triggering an ice age killing nearly all of humanity. The remaining humans live on an enormous train (the Snowpiercer) with 1001 carriages and a perpetual motion engine. Society’s class system is based on a hierarchy of how close your carriage is to the engine. Poverty and violence overtakes the end of train, and a revolution is brewing. Captain America with an axe? Captain America with an axe.

The first footage below isn’t in English, as it’s shown during an interview with Bong Joon-ho in his native Korean, but it has some interesting footage. Snowpiercer also stars John Hurt, Ko Asung, Alison Pill, Song Kangho, Ewen Bremner, and Ed Harris. We have character posters below as well. Makes me want to take a shower just looking at them. But I won’t. Because I’m a blogger. *lifts up dirty, ripped “Who farted?” T-shirt to reveal BLOGLIFE stomach tattoo*
