Climate change is a notoriously unclickable topic, yet it undeniably captures our imagination, given how often it shows up as a central plot point in films. From Waterworld to the charming animated feature Ice Age, it just keeps coming back.
Snowpiercer, the action-packed 2014 dystopian drama, is jam-packed with evocative imagery. The train against the snowy countryside, the radically different cars on the train, as well as the battles that happen on it. Choosing a single moment for a poster is tough. Which is why artist JC Richard didn’t choose just one.
Limitless. Minority Report. Damien. Fargo. Scream. Ash vs Evil Dead.

The entirety of the film Snowpiercer takes place on a train—a very special train that I can't stop thinking about. The movie itself is great—we've followed the film here due to its unique distribution plan to be made available on-demand platforms just weeks after being released in theaters—but to be honest, I…

But no one has yet commented on one of the film's most unusual subtexts — its direct allusions to Gnosticism, the ancient Christian belief system that was damned by the Roman Church as heretical and virtually extinguished by the 5th century.
Snowpiercer looks like a badass movie. Like if Blade Runner had sex with Speed. The sci-fi film has great reviews, an intriguing plot about hardscrabble future people engaging in class warfare on a really fast cold-weather train, and Tilda Swinton. But with a limited theatrical release, it hasn't been very easy to…
Never bet against a massive ice-cracking high-speed train. For months, everybody's been talking about how the Weinstein Company dumped the masterpiece Snowpiercer in limited release after director Bong Joon-ho wouldn't agree to cuts and a voiceover. But now... the movie's actually on its way to being a sleeper hit.
At first glance, Snowpiercer's premise sounds kind of bizarre. There's been an Ice Age, and the last surviving humans gather on a huge train that drives around in circles.

When we last left Snowpiercer, Harvey Weinstein had finally given up his vision of taking out 25 minutes of footage and adding narration to the already award-winning film from Bong Joon-Ho, but had decided to give it a limited a release. As this first U.S. trailer shows, it's still going to be worth tracking down.
Let's be real, a movie about a post apocalyptic train that is speeding through the destroyed Earth struggling under a bloody class war could be... silly. But the new red-band trailer for Bong-Joon Ho's Snowpiercer shows the movie is anything bute.
