The first official photo from The Host writer/director Bong Joon-ho’s new sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer is online (via The Film Stage) and can be viewed below. We’ve also added some concept art from the film below the photo.
Snowpiercer, based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige,” is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
The film stars Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Brewmner, Alison Pill, John Hurt and Ed Harris.
