TNT has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Snowpiercer series. The trailer focuses mainly on Jennifer Connelly’s Melanie Cavill, who seems to be a sort of black sheep among her peer first-class passengers. The reason? Her interest in the lower class passengers like Daveed Diggs’s Layton Well. It will be up to the latter to light the fire that will undermine the train’s current social order.
To clarify the timeframe, a Snowpiercer timeline image has made its way online. The timeline shows that the upcoming post-apocalyptic dystopian series is set eight years before the events of Bong Joon Ho movie. And the movie told a separate story from the original comics. This revelation comes unexpectedly, since most of the media thought this was a reboot and not just a prequel. At the same time, it might open the door to some interesting references.
You can watch the new Snowpiercer trailer in the player below. And you can also check out the Snowpiercer franchise timeline in the gallery below.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
“Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the graphic novel series and film from Oscar winner Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).”
The Snowpiercer series will premiere on Sunday, May 17 at 9 pm on TNT. What do you think about the new Snowpiercer trailer? Let us know in the comments section below.
