Bong Joon-Ho's SNOWPIERCER Character Posters
The first images from Boon Joon-Ho's adaptation of Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette's graphic novel Le Transperceneige have surfaced and are extremely emotive, particularly Tilda Swinton (above). From the devastating results of an experiment to stop global warming, the last of humanity reside on the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the world propelled by a perpetual motion engine. Like George Orwell's Animal Farm, the last of humanity though equal in salvation soon develop a class system that threatens their existence.
The film is due for release this Summer (2013). Filming wrapped at Barrandov Studios, Prague in July last year. See the full resolution images HERE.
